Leeds Beckett University

Leeds Beckett University are delighted to support the IOSH No Time to Lose campaign which highlights the dangers of occupational cancers in the workplace.

The damaging effects of occupational cancers on health can go unseen for long periods of time, and we are committed to raising awareness of occupational cancers through our Occupational Health Team via targeted initiatives but also at grass route level.

Our commitment to safety, health and wellbeing is highlighted by the university having achieved the RoSPA Gold Medal for the 7th successive year and we will continue to put the health and wellbeing of our staff and other service providers to the top of our wellbeing agenda.

We are pleased to be a part of the campaign and will continue to ensure that all our colleagues and stakeholders are aware of our commitment to highlighting the risks of carcinogens in the workplace.

"Cancer is, by far, the biggest workplace killer, yet it is preventable. That is why we welcome this campaign which is based clearly on removing the cause at source. We will encourage unions and employers to work together to ensure that workers are protected from risk."
