The definition of occupational diseases

Occupational disease is a medico-legal concept. It is defined as a pathology caused by harmful factors occurring in the work environment or by the way of performing a job, and included in the official list of occupational diseases. The Ordinance by the Council of Ministers of 30 June 2009 on occupational diseases (Journal of Laws 2009, No. 105, item. 869) contains the list of occupational diseases and specifies how to collect information about their incidence: "§ 9.1. District state sanitary inspector or provincial state sanitary inspector, within 14 days from the date on which the decision about diagnosing an occupational disease has become final, fills-in an Occupational Disease Reporting Form and sends it to the Central Register of Occupational Diseases run within the Nofer Institute of Occupational Medicine in Lodz.”
