Workers and chemicals: 10th ETUI seminar

The tenth ETUI seminar on chemicals and worker protection took place in Ispra (Italy) on 26 and 27 June 2014. Some thirty union experts from 17 countries took stock of the implementation of the REACH and CLP regulations, the revision of the Carcinogens Directive, the risks of working with nano-materials or endocrine disruptors and the Transatlantic Trade & Investment Partnership (TTIP).

The seminar, which was co-organized with the Italian General Confederation of Labour (CGIL-IT), helped coordinate all-EU trade union action in these areas.

Experts from the European Commission, the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA), and the EU Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA) shared their experiences and informed the debate. The RISCTOX database produced in collaboration with the Spanish Trade Union Institute (ISTAS) was officially launched during the meeting.
