Training provider resources

We can beat occupational cancers if we work together to control the risks of exposure to the causes.

That’s why, to help us lead on tackling this important issue, we’ve invited all our training providers to get involved.

To support you in raising awareness, sharing knowledge and engaging delegates in solutions, we’ve produced the following toolbox talks for you to deliver to your in–house and commercial delegates.

Asbestos resources

Asbestos is the biggest occupational cancer killer, claiming over 100,000 lives a year worldwide. In Britain alone, around 5,000 people die from an asbestos-related cancer each year.

Silica dust resources

Silica dust is a day-to-day hazard in many industries. But in the form of quartz or cristobalite dust, respirable crystalline silica is carcinogenic to humans. In Britain, nearly 800 people die a year from lung cancer caused by breathing in silica dust at work. Worldwide, millions of employees are exposed to this carcinogen.

Solar radiation resources

Skin cancer is one of the more significant cancers linked to work. In Britain alone, five people a day are diagnosed with skin cancer from occupational exposure to harmful sun rays.

Diesel exhaust emissions resources

Diesel soot contains particles that include carcinogenic substances. Yet, in the UK, around 500,000 workers could be exposed to dangerous levels of diesel fumes – across Europe, it could be more than 3.6 million people.
