Carcinogens at work: Info sheet now available in several languages

Cancer is estimated to be the leading cause of work-related deaths in the EU. A large proportion of cancers may be linked to exposure to carcinogens at work.

EU-OSHA’s info sheet on carcinogens at work is now available in 16 languages. It provides practical advice on avoiding the risks from carcinogens in the workplace as well as links to useful resources.

It 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.
