Kentec pledges support to IOSH's "No Time to Lose" Campaign
Posted: 7th October 2019
Kentec Training is supporting the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health’s (IOSH) global campaign to tackle occupational cancer – ‘No Time to Lose’.
Worldwide, work-related cancer claims at least 742,000 lives a year – that’s more than one death a minute. These cancers are caused by exposure to carcinogens including asbestos, silica dust, solar radiation and diesel engine exhaust emissions.
No Time to Lose aims to get carcinogenic exposure issues more widely understood and help businesses take action. The campaign is working to:
- raise awareness of a significant health issue facing employees
- offer businesses free practical, original materials to help them deliver effective prevention programmes
- secure commitments from organisations to improve preventative measures.
To help raise awareness of occupational cancer and support No Time to Lose, we are providing a portfolio of courses to help tackle these issues and bring awareness. There is a plethora of free resources available for organisations, you can find them here.
