    Campaign targets silica safety

    By Jonathan Brown on June 22, 2016

    Campaign targets silica safety

    BOHS will be working with IOSH and the Health and Safety Executive on an initiative to highlight the hazards of respirable crystalline silica.

    Crystalline silica is the second biggest work-related cancer, causing the deaths of around 800 people each year.

    ‘Spotlight on Silica’

    The new initiative features ‘Spotlight on Silica’ presentations that will tackle the health risks from respirable dust while looking at the scale of the problem and the findings from a focus group and recent survey.

    The initiative will explore the role of occupational hygiene in protecting workers from respirable silica dust, and how this fits with the related disciplines of occupational health and well-being.

    There will also be an HSE presentation underlining priority areas and high risk activities, and showcasing examples of good control practices.

    ‘Breathe Freely’

    This initiative ties with BOHS’ campaign, Breathe Freely, which offers a wide range of free resources to help construction managers protect workers from silica and other hazards.

    BOHS’ CEO, Steve Perkins says their input into the talks will be to explain the crucial role of occupational hygiene in managing silica and other workplace health risks, and where this fits within the broader realm of occupational health and well-being.

    BOHS will be sharing some information about their Breathe Freely campaign.
