Breathe Freely initiative
10 April 2015
On 28th April, Worker Memorial Day, BOHS will launch a new initiative called Breathe Freely in partnership with Constructing Better Health, Land Securities and Mace.
The purpose is to prevent occupational lung disease in the construction industry.
Breathe Freely is a collaborative initiative targeted specifically at managers and site supervisors within the construction industry. The aim is not just to raise awareness of the problem of lung disease within construction industry, but also to effect action by providing practical solutions through sharing of best practice and encouraging implementation of effective exposure control.
At the heart of the initiative is a new Worker Health Protection Management Standard, a tool to help employers reduce health risks, raise standards and keep them high.
