Health pioneer remembered

Have your say

A MEMORIAL event was held at Crookes Social Club in tribute to Simon Pickvance, a pioneer of occupational health and protection of people at work. 
Mr Pickvance spent more than 40 years researching links between work and diseases, breaking new ground and enabling steps to be taken to protect workers.

He discovered a link between chemicals used in the steel industry and bladder cancer, which helped workers win compensation for work-related illnesses.
