Tackling occupational cancer in Great Britain

Work undertaken by IOM helped determine that an estimated 8,000 people in the UK die every year from work-related cancer; that is more than double the 3,000 people who die from road traffic accidents annually.

In partnership with Imperial College London for the Health and Safety Executive, IOM’s ground-breaking work made the burden of work-related cancers both a national and international issue, paving the way forward for numerous campaigns and changes in policy to reduce and prevent cancer-related deaths at work.

Campaigns including the Institute of Occupational Safety and Health’s – “No Time to Lose” and The British Occupational Hygiene Societies – “Breathe freely” help drive workplace change and raise awareness amongst the public and organisations.
