To make workers aware about the relevant risks at their workplaces, the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA) recently launched a “Healthy Workplaces” campaign on managing dangerous substances.
According to the European Union (EU) Roadmap on carcinogens, nearly 80.000 cancer deaths are attributed to work-related exposure to carcinogenic substances in the EU each year. Many of these deaths could be avoided by properly assessing the risks and controlling the substances.
The campaign aims to raise awareness of the importance of protecting workers from risks due to exposure to dangerous substances and eliminate, or if this is not possible, manage the risks.
