Construction Safety Campaign
Last year there were 5000 occupational cancer cases in the construction sector. This is the same figure
year in, year out.
There were 1.7m working days lost due to work related ill health and 0.6m days due to workplace
injuries and there were 49 deaths in the construction industry.
