The 'Hidden Killer' campaign has not been cancelled. It is currently in a phase of assessment and evaluation to enable HSE to determine the way forward. The web pages, and other materials, are still accessible and available and additional elements are being actively considered by HSE for possible future delivery. The target audiences for any activity that emerges from this process will continue to include construction workers especially trades such as plumbers, electricians, joiners, plasterers and decorators.
