Roadmap on Carcinogens Conference - Preventing occupational cancer | Portuguese EU Council Presidency
The Portuguese EU Council Presidency is holding the conference "Roadmap on carcinogens: Preventing occupational cancer." This event is aimed to review the past achievements and future perspectives of the Roadmap for 2020-2024.
The conference brings together the Roadmap's partners, occupational safety and health specialists, and representatives of the EU Institutions. Christa Sedlatschek, EU-OSHA's Executive Director, presents the Agency´s main studies and research programmes on preventing occupational exposure to carcinogens.
The Roadmap on Carcinogens started in 2016 as a joint action programme to combat and raise awareness on cancer-causing agents in the workplace.
The initial action scheme had a four-year perspective that made good progress but was far from ready. Therefore, in November 2020 a new Roadmap on Carcinogens strategy for 2020-2024 was presented, including specific challenges to fulfill new ambitions and achieve new goals.
The event is held online on 24 March.
