Event Details

Labour Inspectorate of Estonia (Tööinspektsioon)


EU-OSHA’s focal point in Estonia, Labour Inspectorate of Estonia (Tööinspektsioon), is organising an engaging and informative seminar aimed at creating a safer work environment!

Occupational safety and health (OSH) practitioners, human resources professionals and representatives from state institutions will discover the importance of cancer prevention in the workplace and gain valuable insights into identifying and handling dangerous substances and carcinogens.

This event is designed to raise awareness on the risks associated with hazardous chemicals. It will explore key requirements, best practices and potential violations while hearing real-life examples from an experienced oncologist. A Napo film on carcinogens will be screened.

This is an opportunity to enhance knowledge on occupational cancer prevention and contribute to a healthier future for all workers.
