The innovative survey looks at how European workers are exposed to a selection of cancer risk factors to better identify those responsible for most of the exposures. Such reliable data are essential for both the safety and health of workers and a productive and sustainable economy.

Almost 25,000 interviews are arranged with workers in Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland and Spain. They will be randomly contacted on their mobile phone and asked questions tailored to their current job and about their daily tasks.

The fieldwork will last until January 2023 and publication of first findings is planned for end 2023. Survey results will be complemented by secondary analyses involving in-depth studies on specific topics.
