Infosheet: Carcinogens at Work

Keywords:Campaign 2018-2019, Work related diseases, Work-related cancer

This info sheet, jointly developed by all partners of the Roadmap on Carcinogens, provides concise practical advice on avoiding the risks from carcinogens in the workplace. Designed as a quick reference document for everyday use, it starts by defining occupational carcinogens and outlining the risks they pose.

It then covers the specific legal requirements such as risk assessment, the hierarchy of prevention measures applied to carcinogens and occupational exposure limits. It also provides information on measures for maintenance and incidents and how to recognise workers particularly at risk.

There are links to useful tools and guidance and information on the Roadmap on Carcinogens — everything you need to manage the risks from carcinogens at work.
