Exposure to cancer risk factors at work — a new survey for Europe

Every year between 25 and 31 May, the European Week Against Cancer raises awareness of cancer prevention, access to treatment and support for survivors.

To mark the week, EU-OSHA presented its plans for a new and innovative Worker Survey on Exposure to Cancer Risk Factors in Europe. By collecting reliable data on workplace exposure, the survey is expected to fill significant gaps in the information that we have on one of the biggest work-related health problems in Europe.

The information collected will provide an accurate and comprehensive picture of current risks and help to inform future preventive measures. Preparatory work on the survey has already begun, and EU-OSHA plans to publish the first findings in 2023.
