Every year in the UK, up to 3,000 people develop asthma because they are exposed to dangerous substances at work. This is called occupational asthma. 750,000 people with asthma fi nd that things at work make their asthma worse. offi cer may have information on the chemicals you work with. Contact The fi rst step is to use a peak fl ow be able to advise you on how expo-sure to particular substances can be prevented.
How to test your lungsWorkers can get a good indication of the effect of workplace factors on their lungs using a peak fl ow meter.
Lungs which have not been too badly damaged by chemicals show a tell-tale response when confronted with a sensitiser. The lungs recover over a weekend or break period; a reading will be characteristically high on a Monday morning. It will continue to drop through the week, only recovering again at the weekend. There will tend to be a time lag between exposure and onset of symptoms.
The effects of exposure to irritants will not offer so clear an exposure
“fi ngerprint”. There will usually be a more instantaneous effect, with symptoms directly following an exposure to a lung irritant.
