One in 10 cases of asthma in adults (both new asthma symptoms and childhood asthma symptoms returning) is thought to be caused by substances they are exposed to at their place of work. 

The most common type of occupational asthma is allergic occupational asthma. This means that the symptoms are caused by an allergic reaction to substances you’re exposed to while doing your job.
