An individual can develop occupational asthma if they are exposed to substances within their line of employment. Occupational asthma is usually caused due to working conditions.

Bakers and vehicle paint sprayers have been identified as the most 'at risk' workers of developing occupational asthma due to their exposure to certain substances, but occupational asthma can develop in almost any industry.

Causes of Occupational Asthma

A small selection of the main causes of occupational asthma are as follows:

  • Flour exposure
  • Grain exposure
  • Exposure to Isocyanates
  • Exposure to Laboratory animals
  • Exposure to Latex
  • Exposure to Enzymes
  • Exposure to Colophony
  • Exposure to egg proteins
  • Exposure to fish proteins
  • Exposure to nickel sulphate
  • Exposure to dust
  • Exposure to smoke

There are a myriad of irritant substances that can cause occupational asthma and symptoms can sometimes take weeks or months to develop.
