What are the common types of industrial disease claims a fettler can make for exposure to noise and dust at work?
A fettler is the job title given to an individual who operates a grinding machine to smooth manufactured metal or caramic objects.
A grinding machine not only produces excessive noise, but also results in dust being produced which is breathed into the lungs of the grinder operator or fettler.
If hearing and breathing protection is not provided to fettlers it is likely that long term exposure to these hazards can lead to industrial diseases, such as industrial deafness and tinnitus or breathing disorders depending on the dust produced by the grinding machine.
