||Consequences of occupational asthma on employment and financial status: A follow-up study
||1997, Vol.10, p.55-58. 19 ref.
||A review of the employment status of 209 patients with occupational asthma showed that 3.1 years after diagnosis, 44% had left their previous job and 25% were unemployed. 32% remained exposed to the offending agents in the same job. 46% had suffered a reduction of income. Claims for compensation, size of the company, level of education, and age at the time of diagnosis were significantly associated with a risk for becoming unemployed or having a new employer after the diagnosis of occupational asthma. It is recommend that the French compensation system for occupational asthma should be revised.
