Cutting, drilling, grinding and polishing – which are all regular tasks for those in the sector – generate particulates fine enough to get deep into your lungs. Exposure to those particulates can cause lung cancer and other serious debilitating respiratory diseases. It is estimated that exposure to workplace particulates causes over 3,500 deaths a year in construction, which are ultimately preventable. Sadly, we have lost members of the NAS family to such diseases in the past.
The NAS Respiratory Health and Training campaign (7 June – 11 June 2021) is a collaborative effort, particularly with our excellent Approved Training Providers and Partners AT&C (UKATA), UKATA, Kentec, We Fit RPE (Fit2Fit), and Didac.
Our thanks also go to Trolex and Sundstrom, for their support and generous donations. Collectively, we hope to raise awareness of the impact of particulates and even if just one life is saved, it will all be worthwhile.
