EU PRESIDENCY: SAFE WORK ENVIRONMENTS IN EUROPE
Safe work environments in Europe.
Over the past decades, many employees in Europe were exposed to carcinogens which are known to be a cause for the emergence of cancer. These carcinogens include substances present in many European work environments like asbestos, chrome and quartz. To tackle this problem, the Dutch Ministry of Social Affairs and Employment hosted the conference ‘Banning Work-related Cancer’ on the 23rd , 24th and 25th of May, 2016. &MAES advised on the program of the conference, organized the press meetings and moderated the three-day long event.
