IIDB Workplace compensation scheme an 'unholy mess' claims study

The UK government's workplace compensation IIDB scheme covers only a tiny proportion of those made ill by their work and needs urgent reform, a new study has warned.

Shambolic : Professor Andrew Watterson, from the university's occupational and environmental health research group, said The UK Government's workplace compensation scheme requires urgent reform.

It's shambolic an unholy mess with only a tiny proportion of those made sick by their work in with a sniff of any compensation.

The industrial injuries disablement benefit scheme excludes many conditions and those that are covered tend to be subject to claim-barring disability thresholds,

Minimum exposure times and job restrictions.

Be nice to think all party's was intrested in occupational health lung health but sadly thus far only labour libdems o and one cons mp attend any awareness campaigns.

All this talk of work and when that work makes you sick no one wants to know you anymore.

Well this lot of sick who votes count LETs all make our voices heard.

  • In 2008 when I was in full respiratory failure I was asked all the time had I worked with asbestos because of the way the lungs had been attacked but it was not until 2012 that I had my lungs looked at again because I found I had cut the stuff on a circular saw without masks for over 10 years! The GP's or Consultants will not commit to it being asbestos at all now?

    Be well
