Karen Clayton, Director, Chemicals Regulation Division
"HSE needs the help of others in the health and safety system to tackle the issues around occupational lung disease. The LOcHER pilot at the three Vocational Education colleges has clearly shown that this innovative approach can help to significantly improve awareness of the danger of lung disease and how to control exposure in your learners. HSE is committed to contributing to this and I am happy to see the work of LOcHER and the colleges around the country who have already become involved and invite others to do so as well.
Our newly formed Steering Group met in August 2017 and are keen to build on this great work. I fully support the LOcHER project and look forward to seeing what the "workers of tomorrow" can do today in support of 'Helping Great Britain Work Well'."
