Growing Political Support for Occupational Cancers Campaign

The Institution of Occupational Safety and Health’s (IOSH) No Time to Lose campaign has recently received the backing of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Skin (APPG), which raises awareness of skin-related issues at Parliament.

Members of APPG have endorsed IOSH’s efforts to highlight through the campaign the link between solar radiation exposure and work-related cancer registrations and deaths.

It is the latest All-Party Group to give No Time to Lose its support, following similar endorsement of the campaign by the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Occupational Safety and Health.

Through its endorsement, the APPG on Skin strongly urged “all employers with an at risk workforce to make use of the IOSH’s informative educational tools” on solar radiation, a common cause of occupational cancer.

The group also argued that “through informed, cost efficient and responsible decision making we can make the UK a safer place to work”.

No Time to Lose is raising awareness and offering practical advice to help businesses protect their workers from occupational cancer, with a specific focus on five common work-related risk factors - diesel engine exhaust emissions, solar radiation, asbestos, silica dust and shift work.

It’s estimated that across the world 666,000 people die each year from work-related cancers.

In the EU, one in five workers faces an occupational cancer risk, while in Great Britain some 14,000 new cases are registered each year and around 8,000 people die as a result of a cancer linked to their work.
