To avoid getting cancer being a firefighter is not just about the Fire Services providing the proper equipment, but it is also about the unit taking part in ensuring the right preventive measures.
Of course the proper equipment is necessary! However, the management and crew need to get behind a culture, where focus is on safety and minimizing impacts during firefighting. The units at the local fire stations must discuss what their positions are on preventive behaviour, how big an influence the actions have before, during and after a fire call. That is the essence of preventive behaviour.
In this pamphlet you can read about how the workplace, management and crew can avoid having a research done in 20 years’ time, on why so many firefighters get cancer – namely, by being in control of preventive behaviour.
