New app Canairy tackles air quality for outdoor workers

King’s College London and the British Safety Council have developed the world’s first mobile app for outdoor workers to measure their exposure to air pollution in London.

Canairy will provide outdoor workers with information to help them reduce their exposure to air pollution and employers with intelligence to protect the health of their workers. 

Today, outdoor workers marched through Oxford Circus to raise awareness of the issue. 

Andrew Grieve, King’s College’s Senior Air Quality Analyst and Matthew Holder, Head of Campaigns at the British Safety Council, say the issue is currently overlooked by both regulators and employers.
