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.
European Week Against Cancer (EWAC) takes place between 25 and 31 May to mobilise governments, organisations and individuals in the fight against cancer.
On 4 February we observe World Cancer Day 2022 to raise awareness of cancer and to encourage its prevention, detection, and treatment. Cancer is also one of the biggest health concerns for European workplaces. According to the Roadmap on Carcinogens annually more than 100,000 people die because of work-related cancer.
