An occupational allergy is allergy-related symptoms caused by an occupational exposure.
Due to their high and ever-increasing prevalence, allergic diseases have emerged as a serious public health issue in Australia and present a major socio-economic burden. Our medical professionals are experienced in the provision of worker’s compensation claims following allergy testing.
We can provide initial work cover certificates for allergy related claims for allergy-related:
Allergic Contact Dermatitis e.g. latex gloves in health care workers, hairdressers from hair dyes and chemicals
Occupational asthma or rhinitis e.g. wood dusts or chemicals
Contact allergic reactions to food in food handlers e.g. seafood handlers.
An accurate identification of triggers forms the basis of workers compensation reports. Early identification of an occupational trigger may allow for changes in work practice.
