BOHS Calls for Urgent Action to Tackle UK’s Hidden Crisis in Women’s Workplace Health – British Occupational Hygiene Society (BOHS)

The report highlights that women are carrying more of the burden of occupational disease than men and emphasizes that immediate action is needed to address this crisis before it becomes unmanageable.

We are witnessing a silent and growing crisis that is significantly damaging women’s health in the workplace. As scientists committed to the prevention of workplace ill-health, I am delighted that our Society and Occupational Hygienists are showing leadership in this neglected area. However, the burden of occupational disease on women is an issue that demands urgent attention from all stakeholders in Occupational Health.” said BOHS President, Alex Wilson.
