Scottish Firms Urged to Get Behind Occupational Cancer Campaign

Businesses across Scotland, and throughout the UK, are being encouraged support a campaign aimed at preventing the risks of occupational cancers.

According to Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH), the organisation behind the No Time to Lose campaign, the decisions which businesses and their respective health and safety experts make today with regards to controlling exposure to dangerous carcinogens in the workplace, will help to save lives in the future.

The campaign has already gathered significant support with the government as well as businesses of all sizes and forms getting behind the cause. Whilst the support to date is promising, to help reduce the 666,000 deaths caused by exposure to carcinogens such as asbestos and silica dust at work, Donald Macfarlane of IOSH, has called upon more businesses to join the campaign.

According to Mr Macfarlane:

"For too long families in this part of Scotland have suffered from the cruel effects of exposure to carcinogens in the workplace.

"People should not have to be put at risk of such exposure as they go about their day-to-day business.

"We are pleased to be bringing this campaign to the attention of safety and health practitioners in this part of Scotland, as it is as important here as anywhere else.

"We urge businesses to get involved. By controlling carcinogenic exposure today they really can save lives tomorrow."

To advance the campaign and to raise greater awareness of occupational cancers, a meeting will take place on Wednesday 8 April between 6pm and 8pm at the Jurys Inn in Aberdeen.

At said meeting, Professor John Cherrie from the Institute of Occupational Medicine, will talk to the delegates about the impact of work-related cancer and highlight the action Scottish firms can take action to prevent it.
