British Safety Council is launching Time to Breathe, a UK-wide campaign to raise awareness of the risks to outdoor workers from air pollution. Outdoor workers can do a variety of jobs (newspaper sellers, lollipop people, road works, couriers etc), many of them on or near busy roads. Evidence shows that long-term exposure to pollutants can damage people’s health.

Canairy: British Safety Council launches pollution protection app for outdoor workers

As part of the campaign we are also launching Canairy, a mobile app that the British Safety Council has built with King’s College, London. It is a tool for London-based employers and workers to gather information to help reduce exposure of outdoor workers to poor quality air. It comes in both iOS and Android versions and is FREE to use. Please contact [email protected] to access Canairy.
