Breathe Freely at Work

Breathe Freely is a British Occupational Hygiene Society (BOHS) initiative that focuses on mitigating occupational lung diseases. These conditions lead to severe health impairments and are responsible for approximately 13,000 fatalities annually. The core objective of “Breathe Freely” is twofold: firstly, to enhance awareness regarding the issue, and secondly, to offer actionable solutions.

The aim is to safeguard the health of workers and prevent the majority of these illnesses and deaths. This endeavor is not solely rooted in a moral imperative; it also yields substantial benefits for businesses. Achieving widespread acceptance of this concept is an integral part of the solution.
