• A commitment that no carcinogens will be introduced to the workplace in the future.

• A commitment that employees with cancer will not be discriminated against on grounds of disability (this is unlawful under the Equality Act 2010).

• Provision for time off with pay for regular cancer and other screening for men and women.

• Provision for time off with pay for treatment.
