IOSH awareness campaign aims to tackle work-related cancers

 
Morrison Utility Services, the UK’s largest, dedicated, independent utility service provider, is pledging its support for a high-profile campaign to tackle work-related cancers.
 
The No Time to Lose campaign, run by the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH), aims to raise understanding of carcinogenic exposure issues and help businesses take action by working to:
  • raise awareness of a significant health issue facing workers in the UK and internationally
  • suggest some solutions on a UK scale to tackle the problem – a national model that can be transposed internationally
  • offer free and practical materials to businesses to help them deliver effective prevention programmes.
 
Morrison Utility Services Safety, Health, Environment and Quality Director Paul Kerridge commented: “We’re pleased to support IOSH in what is a very important awareness campaign. The health and wellbeing of our people is a key priority for our business and the No Time to Lose campaign offers guidance to organisations on how to prevent employee exposure to cancer-causing agents in workplaces. The initiative provides a strong platform for raising awareness of potential cancer-related risks and how to deliver effective prevention programmes."
 
IOSH Executive Director of Policy Shelley Frost commented: “Through our campaign supporters, employees the world over are being made aware of the risks posed by carcinogens in workplaces and controls are being put in place to prevent such exposures. It is through such collaboration that we stand the best chance of preventing people from becoming seriously ill as a result of the work they do.”
