Product Description

Work-related asthma is the most common occupational respiratory disorder in industrialized countries. It creates a narrowing of the air passages that makes it difficult to breathe. Symptoms are typically worse on working days and improve when away from work.

Early and accurate diagnosis, plus changes in the workplace, can make a difference to the well-being of patients and their co-workers.

Share this infographic with information on symptoms, triggers, occupations at risk, and prevention strategies for employers, to help spread awareness of work-related asthma.

This infographic was created in partnership with the Ontario Lung Association.
