Popis

The workshop ‘Carcinogens and Work-Related Cancer’ was organised by the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA) and held on 3 and 4 September 2012. About 60 people from various European countries, the European Commission, the Advisory Committee on Safety and Health’s Working Party on Chemicals, the Chemex group of the Senior Labour Inspectors Committee (SLIC), the Scientific Committee on Occupational Exposure Limits (SCOEL), the European Chemicals Agency and the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) of the World Health Organization (WHO) attended. The aim of the workshop was to summarise the current understanding of exposures to carcinogens and the causes and circumstances of work-related cancer, and to discuss how this knowledge can be used across the EU to reduce the future burden of these cancers.
