As organisations manage the risks associated with Covid-19, it's of course vital that we don’t lose sight of other threats to the health and safety of people at work, including carcinogens.
As IOSH’s award-winning, global campaign No Time to Lose (NTTL) approaches its sixth anniversary on 3 November, we bring together a panel of experts, campaigners and those affected by workplace cancer to discuss why the management of the risks of workplace carcinogens is so important – and how we can do it effectively.
IOSH Council member and NTTL ambassador Keith Hole will chair a panel discussion including Kevin Bampton, chief executive of BOHS, the Chartered society for worker health protection, who will discuss the impact of his organisation’s campaign, Breathe Freely. The panel is also joined by Dr Ian Mudway, senior lecturer in the School of Public Health at Imperial College London, will be previewing findings from the Driver Diesel Exposure Mitigation Study (DEMiSt).
