Counting the costs

The Workplace Safety and Health Institute and Ministry of Social Affairs and Health Finland, has estimated that across the world, 742,000 men and women lose their lives to work-related cancer every year – that’s one death every 43 seconds.

IOSH launched its No Time to Lose campaign on 03 November 2014, and we started this counter to mark our launch. The total you see shows an estimate of the number of people who have died from workplace cancer since that date.
