Mahoney Contracts is supporting the No Time to Lose campaign, which involves working together to beat occupational cancer. We are striving to reassure our workforce by demonstrating our commitment to managing harmful exposures.
How does occupational cancer affect us?
- 8,000 occupational cancer cases result in fatality in the UK each year
- 5,000 of these cases are from exposure to asbestos
- Just under 2,500 of these cases are within the construction
Over the coming months, we will be developing our prevention strategy on tackling the risks, whilst ensuring all personnel understand how to proactively manage this significant health issue. We will also be demanding the same standards throughout our supply chain.
