No Time To Lose - Working together to beat Occupational Cancer
Campaign to cut work cancer deaths launched
An industry-wide campaign to cut the number of deaths from occupational cancer will be launched Monday 3 November in London. Safety Groups UK have signed up to this campaign through IOSH.
According to conservative estimates, some 8,000 people die from cancer and around 14,000 contract the disease each year in the UK because of exposure to a work-related carcinogen, such as diesel exhaust fumes, silica dust or asbestos fibres. Worldwide, occupational cancer claims the lives of more than 666,000 a year – one death every 47 seconds.
