Tax time headache?
Let us crunch the numbers

National Gallery a healthy place to work says Radford

By johnboy 25 May 2006 5

Possibly pleased with a distraction from his purge of the Old Masters, NGA Director Ron Radford has fronted Senate Estimates to talk about the numbers of his security staff getting cancer. The ABC reports that he doesn’t think there’s a problem at all.

“The incidence of cancer at the gallery, taking the number of people and their age limit, is slightly lower than the Canberra average, it’s not above the average, it’s lower,”

So it’s just the security guards getting sick?

What’s Your opinion?

Im pretty sure that bowel cancer was mentioned for at least a couple of the cases, in previous articles

Most players will be aware that there have been several cases of asbestosis reported amongst former staff in the last couple of years, but this is news to me.

Interestingly it has not been indicated what types of cancer have been found amongst these security staff – this will provide the evidence of any correlation as well as potentialy pointing the finger to the cause – if one exists.

I am positive there is a link between sitting on your arse all day and arse cancer… i have heard it so many times even from public servants…

If it is just the security guards that are coming down with cancer then I think some maoney needs to be spent on examining the possible link bewteen cancer and eating too many donuts, drinking too much coke and sitting around on your fat arse moaning about management.
