EU-OSHA marks World Cancer Day by announcing a survey on exposure to cancer risk factors at work

Cancer is a major cause of work-related deaths in Europe. We need reliable and comparable data on workplace exposure to cancer risk factors in Europe to protect workers and fight work-related cancer.

EU-OSHA is therefore pleased to announce on World Cancer Day that its tripartite Governing Board has given the green light to start work in 2020 on a computer-assisted telephone survey to estimate workers’ exposure to cancer risk factors.

Read the report and the summary report about the feasibility study on developing the telephone survey.
