Popis

The guidelines are intended to cover the prevention of occupational oncology risks as part of primary tumour prevention and to promote a culture of occupational risk prevention. The guidelines are useful mostly for medical personnel but there is also information that is useful for other occupational safety and health (OSH) specialists. The guidelines include figures on the number of workers exposed to carcinogens in Italy and in Tuscany specifically. There is also an annex containing the types of tumour associated with the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) carcinogens (for 2015).
