What is COPD?

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or COPD is a group of diseases that cause airflow blockage and breathing issues.  Emphysema and chronic bronchitis are both COPD’s.


Symptoms include increased breathlessness especially when active, a persistent chesty cough with phlegm, frequent chest infections and persistent wheezing are all symptoms of COPD.


COPD happens when the lungs and airways are damaged and inflamed as a result of long-term exposure to harmful substances such as cigarette smoke, which is the main cause of COPD.

COPD can, however also be caused by exposure to certain types of dust and chemicals at work.  Substances linked to COPD are:

  • Silica dust
  • Grain and flour dust
  • Cadmium dust and fumes
  • Welding fumes
  • Isocyanates (often found in construction products such as polyurethane paints, coatings, foams, glues and flooring)
  • Coal dust
