||Over the last years, many studies have focused on occupational causes of respiratory diseases. One of the findings is that chronic cough is one of the most prevalent work-related airway diseases. Occupations which are related to the development of cough include coal miners, hard-rock miners, tunnel workers and concrete manufacturing workers. Since chronic cough is often also based on a variety of non-occupational factors such as tobacco smoke, a distinct separation into either occupational or non-occupational causes can be difficult.
