The roadmap on carcinogens website is now sharing information on two interesting events which are coming up in the next few months. The first event is the Austrian campaign on carcinogens – taking place from June 2017 onwards. The Austrian government recognizes the importance of carcinogen awareness and exposure prevention. Therefore, they are conducting a large-scale sweep across 300 enterprises across the nation in 2017 and aim to include even more companies in 2018. Part of this inspection campaign is to explore behavioral change regarding the handling of carcinogen substances, to answer questions and provide counselling on occupational safety.
