Published October 2018 HSE

Estimates of self-reported “breathing or lung problems” according to the Labour Force Survey currently show: around 20,000 new cases each year; 43,000 new and long-standing cases among those who worked in the previous year, and 146,000 among those who have ever worked. Occupational lung diseases typically have a long latency (they take a long time to develop following exposure to the agent that caused them).
