Abstract
Do your asthma symptoms usually start or get worse when you are at work and get better when you are away from work? Are there any materials or activities at your job that you try to avoid because they make your asthma symptoms worse? If you have answered "Yes" to either of these questions, you may have WORK-RELATED ASTHMA. What should you do? 1. Contact the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services (NJDHSS) and ask for information on work-related asthma. 2. Ask your doctor to report your asthma to the NJDHSS. Early recognition of your work-related asthma is important for successful treatment. New Jersey Law REQUIRES that physicians and advanced practice nurses report individuals diagnosed with work-related asthma to the NJDHSS. What happens after your doctor reports your asthma to the NJDHSS? A healthcare professional will provide helpful information about work-related asthma prevention to you and your doctor. He or she can help identify and control exposure to the substance causing your asthma.
