Occupational cancers account for more than 100,000 deaths a year in the EU, yet these could be avoided by eliminating carcinogens in the production processes. This edited volume brings together the contributions of 28 experts for a review of the current state of knowledge on the issue, new prevention practices, the evolution of legislation and the recognition of cancers as occupational diseases. It coincides with the revision of the European Directive on the protection of workers exposed to carcinogens and aims to contribute, through evidence-based research, to debates surrounding work to eliminate cancer risks at work.
