No working environment can be considered entirely safe.  Unless proper safeguards are taken, the risk of work related disorders is ever present.

Traditionally, heavy industry provided the bulk of claims arising from exposure to hazards resulting in lung diseases and deafness. Whilst claims in these areas continue, more modern risks have been seen to develop in areas such as stress (psychological injury) and musculoskeletal problems.

As new areas develop, complex causation issues can arise. BTO’s Occupational Illness Team has the experience and knowledge itself, and through a wide-ranging network of expert witness contacts, to deal with the necessary investigations quickly and effectively.

We deal with all aspects of occupational diseases and work related illnesses, providing advice to insurers and employers and handling their claims.  We will also advise on the procedural and technical issues that can complicate these cases.
