Certain jobs are particularly dangerous for the workers, to involve contact with toxic or harmful substances to health which could lead to huge losses for them for them. Credit: Nature Research-2011.

Another characteristic element thereof would be its symptoms appear most frequently among those who perform a particular profession that among the public in general. The true gravity of this type of cases the statistics are very clear, and show that the number of deaths due to this type of disease is far superior to that occurs as a result of accidents and occupational injuries. As we advance before, more tragic in relation to them is that, with the proper putting protection available to workers, the risks associated with this type of pathologies could be avoided in most cases in a total way. That is why many times behind such diseases is the negligence by the employer, and can speak of civil liability in his charge by the above-mentioned pathologies developed, emerging in favour of the worker entitlement to financial compensation for the damage suffered. Some examples of them – the cancer developed by numerous professionals in health and nuclear industry (in the latter case, by the realization of x-rays).
