More information

At WorkSafe, we support businesses to improve work-related health. One of our current initiatives is to prevent harm from carcinogens (something that can cause or promote cancer) and airborne risks (something in the air that might be inhaled or might interact with the skin).

Carcinogens and airborne exposures are estimated to account for at least 31% of work-related harm (in disability-adjusted life years lost). Controlling and preventing exposure will make a lasting impact on your health, safety, and wellbeing, and your workers’.

To help you identify, control, and manage exposure and help to keep you and your workers safe, we're taking the roadshow across New Zealand.

If your business involves work where there could be exposure to carcinogens and airborne risks such as welding, silica, asbestos and dust, these events are for you. Industries include (but not limited to):

  • Brick and block layers
  • Building
  • Collision and repair
  • Concrete cutters
  • Construction
  • Engineering
  • Manufacturing
  • Quarries
  • Woodworking
