With workplace safety in our sector now on a strong footing, focusing on protecting the occupational health of workers is of upmost importance, so this campaign is very timely.

It is vital that more is done now to identify and reduce worker exposure to deadly carcinogens, such as asbestos, right across the construction industry.

ECA will continue to develop guidance and tools, such as our eRAMS risk assessment service, to support our members and indeed contractors and installers across the industry to minimise any harmful exposure to carcinogens.
