New European partners joined; a refreshed strategy will strengthen effort as the ‘Roadmap on Carcinogens’ is heading from Berlin 2020 to Brussels 2024.

The battle against occupational cancer continues!

Neither falling from heights, nor machine accidents are responsible for the highest numbers of work-related deaths… Cause no. 1 is cancer, because workers are exposed to carcinogenic substances. In Europe alone, each year over 100,000 people die because of just going to work, of just doing their job. This is unacceptable! These cases of cancer are preventable: we only need to avoid exposure to cancer-causing agents at work. We are able to change things if we want to. In 2016, the Roadmap on Carcinogens (RoC1.0) was initiated as an action scheme to raise awareness in companies about carcinogens and to communicate tools to tackle exposure at the shop floor. Right now a refreshed action scheme is about to start for another leg through Europe, taking us from Berlin 2020 to Brussels 2024.
