Being in the health and safety industry, we have unfortunately grown accustomed to hearing tragic stories about people being injured or even killed in dangerous workplaces. But what about those people who suffer from less noticeable illnesses day in, day out?


This month, we took a closer look at stress and work-related diseases. With around 325,000 people in the UK diagnosed with cancer every year, we hear from Professor Gordon Wishart on why employers should provide cancer screening programmes to their workforce. You’ll also find advice from the British Occupational Hygiene Society (BOHS) on how to help employees tackle stress at work.

Elsewhere in this issue, we have a dedicated section on construction and site safety. Here, Casella explains how advances in technology can protect contractors from exposure to harmful vapours, noise and dusts and Polyco advises on how to look after the hands of your workers.


In this month’s edition of Legislation Focus, Hosking Associates consider whether the HSE’s Fee for Intervention scheme has helped to stamp out poor health and safety practices and in 10 Questions we find out why Arco’s Product Manager wants to have dinner with Eisenhower and Churchill.


This is our last issue until January 2015, so from all of us here at Tomorrow’s Health and Safety – merry Christmas and a happy new year!


Hello everyone and welcome to Issue 15 of Tomorrow’s Health & Safety.
