Keeping lungs healthy
We need to make sure we keep people’s lungs healthy.
That means we need to do more to prevent people getting lung disease. We can do that by tackling: smoking, air quality, occupational health and flu vaccination.
If I had known the impact that COPD would have on my life in terms of severely limiting me in the everyday things I want to do, and even those I need to do, I would probably have stopped smoking long before I did.Jay Dowle, living with COPD

Everyone should go home healthy from work. Employers must understand their responsibilities and put measures in place to prevent or control risks. To do nothing is not an option. We must protect workers health.
