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.
