Occupational lung disease

Main Article COPD

Occupational lung diseases are a specific branch of occupational diseases concerned primarily with work related exposures to harmful substances, be they dusts or gases, and the subsequent pulmonary disorders that may occur as a result. Substances known to cause lung disease include coal dust, Asbestos, Silicon (which is usually in the form of quartz) and Barium.

For diseases arising from exposure to such chemicals, see Pneumoconiosis, Asbestosis, Byssinosis and Berylliosis.
