We all get ill from time to time because of our time spent in the workplace. While this could transpire into just the common cold or the flu spreading among colleagues, other individuals are plagued by more serious ailments due to the work environment. Unfortunately, a harmful work condition, such as asbestos or extreme stress, could result in a worker suffering from a serious mental or physical illness.
