EU OSHA May Conduct Survey on Workplace Exposure to Carcinogens

The agency is commissioning a study to assess the feasibility of designing a computer-assisted phone survey.

The European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU OSHA) announced that it is commissioning a study to assess the feasibility of designing a computer-assisted phone survey incorporating automated expert assessment – such as AWES – in Europe in order to estimate the prevalence of occupational exposure to carcinogens.

The GHS classification and labeling system for chemicals uses this symbol to denote carcinogenic substances.The study will also make recommendations on survey methodology and implementation; the final objective is to identify to what extent a worker-survey based on an electronic expert module could provide useful information on workplace exposures to carcinogens in one or more European countries. The Bilbao-based agency is accepting proposals to do the study, with a submission deadline of Sept. 23, 2016.

The total estimated value of the project is 100,000 euros.

"Exposure to carcinogens and work-related cancer: A review of assessment methods," a 2014 EU OSHA report, is available here.

EU-OSHA is the European Union information agency for occupational safety and health. Its work contributes to the European Commission’s Strategic Framework for Safety and Health at work 2014-2020 and other relevant EU strategies and programs, such as Europe 2020, the EU's growth strategy for the coming decade.
