Further to the CECA Southern Members Meeting in December 2022 where the Diabetes Safety Organisation CEO , Kate Walker, highlighted the challenge presented by diabetes to our industry we can confirm that CECA Signs Up To The Tackling Diabetes Safety Charter. Diabetes is one of the fastest growing epidemics in the UK today, where 1 in 12 people of working age have diabetes, and a quarter of those with diabetes do not know they have the condition. Diabetes creates significant safety risks in the workplace – extreme blood glucose levels can cause someone to lose coordination, concentration, become dizzy and, in worst cases, lose consciousness. This can cause accidents, falls and vehicle collisions, and on a construction site such accidents can be fatal. CECA takes the health, safety and well-being of our members seriously. That is why we are providing members with free access to the One Less posters and online diabetes safety training. Click here to sign up.
