Campaigning to raise awareness of workplace exposure to carcinogens - “No Time to Lose” campaign
This case study focuses on how the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) organised the “No Time to Lose” campaign to help tackle occupational cancer. Through the support of over 220 organisations and collaboration with partners worldwide, the campaign was able to achieve a global impact, with more than 100 high-profile businesses signing the campaign pledge to manage workplace exposures. Success factors included careful planning and thorough consultation, as well as the incorporation of feedback from target sectors into the campaign material. The campaign’s success is partly attributed to continuous evaluation. The campaign covers major risk factors such as diesel motor emissions, asbestos, solar radiation and crystalline silica.
