Occupational Disease in Connecticut, 2001

Occupational diseases are a potentially under-recognized source of disability given the wide disparity in reporting requirements and procedures that exist in various jurisdictions. Nonetheless, an occupational disease could have major impacts on worker health, ability to work, and employer costs. Some diseases, such as cancers from asbestos exposure or HIV or hepatitis from exposure to bloodborne agents in health care, can be fatal. Other diseases, such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome from ergonomic problems, can result in high levels of disability from loss of use of the hands.
