Silicosis is a severe lung condition caused by long-term inhalation of dust containing free crystalline silica. Commonly occurring in jobs where there is rock drilling, stone processing or cutting, abrasive blasting or silica/ and powder is being used.

In the workforce respiratory diseases can affect workers when a contaminant (mold, dust, oxides etc.) becomes airborne and is then breathed in over a period of time.

If this has happened to you then you are able to claim workers compensation for the illness and damages incurred, as well as any prospective damages.

SG Alliance fights for people looking to claim workers compensation given their respiratory issues originated from their workplace. We believe that all workplaces should be a safe area and so, any diseases or illnesses inflicted from the workplace is a grave violation of their working rights. We will actively fight and defend the rights of all victims of injustices.
