This publication describes the development of new methods to assess the number of workers exposed to dangerous substances in the EU and the extent of that exposure. The study aimed to identify the substances and sectors that pose the greatest risks to workers, examining the trends over time.

The purpose was not only to arrive at an overview of the use of dangerous substances but also to create a methodology that could be used again to monitor future trends and developments.
