The second edition of EU-OSHA’s Europe-wide survey of enterprises, ESENER-2, collected responses from almost 50,000 enterprises on OSH management and workplace risks, with a particular focus on psychosocial risks, worker participation, and drivers and barriers to action.
The aim is to provide nationally comparable data to help in policy-making and assist workplaces to deal with risks more effectively.
This initial analysis presents a selection of the results.
Ce plan de gestion 2015 est le deuxième plan annuel de gestion dans le cadre du programme stratégique pluriannuel 2014-2020 de l’Agence européenne pour la sécurité et la santé au travail (EU-OSHA), dont l’un des principaux objectifs est de veiller à ce que le domaine de la sécurité et de la santé au travail (SST) reste une question prioritaire – y compris dans la situation actuelle de crise économique et financière, conformément à la Directive-Cadre (89/391/EEC): “l’amélioration de la sécurité, de l´hygiène et de la santé des travailleurs au travail représente un objectif qui ne saurait être subordonné à des considérations de caractère purement économique."
Estimates of the recent and future burden of occupational diseases indicate that occupational cancer is still a major problem and will remain so in the future as a result of exposure of workers to carcinogens. Occupational cancer is a problem that needs to be tackled across the European Union (EU). This report provides an overview of assessment tools for the exposure to cancer risk factors and looks into relevant occupational factors: chemical, physical and biological exposures, as well as other possibly carcinogenic working environment conditions (such as shift and night work). It also examines opportunities to identify new causes or promoters of cancer, and evaluates existing sources of information, to identify major knowledge gaps and describe some new approaches needed to assess and prevent occupational cancer risks. It also describes occupational cancer prevention measures at European, national and workplace levels and makes recommendations for filling in gaps in relevant knowledge needed to prevent effectively future risks of occupational cancer.
The issue of vulnerable groups of workers (for example women, young workers, workers experiencing high exposure to carcinogens, workers in precarious conditions) is also addressed.
This summary provides a short overview of the findings and recommendations of a report on assessment methods for exposure to carcinogens and work-related cancer. A tabular overview of relevant occupational factors: chemical, physical and biological exposures, as well as other possibly carcinogenic working environment conditions (such as shift and night work), is followed by a short description of exposure assessment tools and some new approaches designed to assess and help prevent occupational cancer risks. The recommendations from the report are summarised in an overview table and make reference to examples from the national, European and workplace level.
