Coke workers claims arise when there has been a disease contracted by someone who works within the coke-making industry.
Coke plant workers are exposed to toxic fumes and dust which may cause lung cancer or other chest diseases and in general, these type of workers are more at risk of all kinds of respiratory illnesses and diseases.
During the production of coke, the material is baked at very high temperatures which produces toxic and dangerous chemicals and dust. Oil and tar are other dangerous by-products that can cause damage.
Communication was open and I knew what was happening every step of the way.

Under Health and Safety law, an employer has a duty of care to protect all of its employees from hazards presented in the workplace. The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health is part of the law and is specifically designed to protect workers who are exposed to harmful chemicals in their working environment.
If an employer has failed to comply with the law and this negligence can be demonstrated then it’s possible your case will be successful.
Respiratory illnesses can be extremely debilitating for individuals and their families.
