New Report Highlights Ways to Improve Work-Related Cancer Prevention

EU-OSHA has released a report regarding work-related cancer on World Cancer Day.

EU-OSHA has released a report that gives recommendations for filling gaps in knowledge regarding work-related cancer as a response to World Cancer Day. This year's World Cancer Day focused on detection, treatment, and care.

The report concentrates on the assessment of carcinogens and work-related cancer by attempting to describe carcinogens and cancer-causing conditions in the workplace, evaluate sources of information and identify knowledge gaps, give recommendations for filling these gaps, and describe prevention measures.

"This report provides practical recommendations on further broadening our knowledge on occupational cancer," said EU-OSHA director Dr. Christa Sedlatschek. "Although cancer research has progressed significantly in the recent past, awareness of occupational cancer risks is still low. Therefore, it is crucial that awareness and knowledge of these risks is improved, and this report takes the first step towards this."

The report looks at chemical, biological, organizational and physical factors that contribute to occupational cancer. It also stresses the need to consider the current work environment, characterized by increased subcontracting, temporary work, multiple jobs, static work, female employment in exposed occupations, atypical working times and multiple exposures.
