On 18 April 2017, organisations from across the UK infrastructure sector will take part in a national Stop. Make a Change event with sites, offices and production facilities putting work on hold to focus on how we can work together to build a healthier, safer industry.


One of the main themes of this is around making improvements in respiratory health, which fits perfectly with the aims of Breathe Freely.


We have produced the following resources to equip you to talk about respiratory health with your workers:
