Occupational Cancer Awareness Campaign

A recent campaign by the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) to raise awareness of occupational cancers is continuing to grow and has become the most successful campaign the charity has developed, IOSH has reported.

No Time to Lose is highlighting five of the common risk factors for occupational cancer registrations and deaths - diesel engine exhaust emissions, solar radiation, asbestos, silica dust and shift work.

“It’s not necessarily the people who are operating plant machinery that are going to die,” explained IOSH President Ian Harper. “The person who is dying is the one who is cutting a piece of concrete with a disc cutter and making a big cloud of dust, but they are suffering a lot slower.”

More than 100 leading businesses have apparently given their support to the campaign, and MPs and Peers who form the All Party Parliamentary Group on Occupational Safety and Health (APPG) have also given the initiative their endorsement.

“The APPG on Occupational Safety and Health is delighted to endorse this important campaign," said group chair Ian Lavery MP. “Occupational cancers are by far the biggest workplace killers but are frequently ignored, despite the fact that they are often easily preventable. This focus on prevention within the IOSH campaign is something we welcome and support.”
