Invitation webinar ‘Cancer risks in healthcare workers’

Identification of Hazardous Medicinal Products (HMPs)

In the healthcare sector, 12.7 million workers across the EU are potentially exposed to Hazardous Medicinal Products (HMPs). While these drugs are vital in the treatment of different diseases such as cancers, psoriasis, etc., they can also pose health risks to those exposed to them at work like nurses, pharmacists, cleaners, etc. 

The ETUI has identified 121 HMPs commonly used in the healthcare sector which can cause cancer or reproductive disorders in professionals exposed to them on a daily basis. Click here for more information about the report.

This webinar will dig into the report and how to use it.
