Work-related cancer in the centre of attention on World Cancer Day

Cancer is one of the biggest health concerns for European workplaces. According to the Roadmap on Carcinogens annually more than 100,000 people die because of work-related cancer.

EU-OSHA is committed to finding ways to better identify occupational cancer risk factors. For this, the fieldwork of the Workers’ exposure survey is carried out in September 2022 and first results are to be published in 2023.

On 7-8 March, a EU Presidency event will organise a conference to raise awareness on the prevention of risks resulting from exposure to carcinogenic substances in the workplace in VSEs, moderated by EU-OSHA.
