Each year, about 120,000 work-related cancer cases occur as a result of exposure to carcinogens at work in the EU, leading to approximately 80,000 fatalities annually. When it comes to dangerous substances such as carcinogens, mutagens and reprotoxic substances, the best approach to occupational safety and health (OSH) is a proactive one.
This expert seminar, organised by the Ministry for Innovation and Technology, Department of Occupational Safety and Health, presents proactive EU and local regulatory and industry trends and efforts. Experts share case studies of proactive industry measures to avoid the potential harms of managing hazardous substances and reduce the chance of physical injuries and strains in the workplace. The objective is to create sustained awareness of the need to develop improved standards for current procedures and practices.
The session on 28 April is aimed at OSH stakeholders, including regulators, health experts, industry representatives, social partners, and consultants. It is the first in-person event in two years and an excellent opportunity for participants to socialise and exchange views face to face.
