Hosted by our Hungarian focal point, the Ministry for Economic Development, the ‘Carcinogen Roadmap Workshop - professional open day in Veszprém county’ is dedicated to raising awareness about the important issue of work-related diseases.

The event, targeting labour and occupational safety and health (OSH) professionals from public institutions, private companies, universities and NGOs, will cover the insights and expertise of the regional OSH authority concerning malignant neoplasms and associated fatalities within Hungary’s Veszprém county. Furthermore, the speakers will present OSH tasks linked to dangerous substances and carcinogens, similarly drawing on the experiences of the county authority responsible for safety and health.

Participants will have the opportunity to hear from an expert medical advisor as well as a specialist from the National Centre for Public Health regarding the importance of implementing a prevention strategy for carcinogenic substances within the workplace, also the crucial role played by occupational health services in safeguarding employees exposed to carcinogens and facilitating their reintegration into the workforce following cancer rehabilitation.
