All Party Parliamentary Group on Skin

Occupational cancers represent a serious and persistent threat to the UK workforce, and it is time for policy makers to heed the call of the IOSH for more research into potential harmful exposures.

However it is also up to employers to ensure the safety of their employees. The All Party Group on Skin is greatly concerned by the evidence, which suggests that the incidence of skin cancer caused by sun exposure is on the rise. I would strongly urge all employers with an at risk workforce to make use of the IOSH’s informative educational tools, to help to reverse this trend. Through informed, cost efficient, and responsible decision making we can make the UK a safer place to work.
