The two-day online conference of the Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs will deal with protection from work-related cancers as part of the Roadmap on Carcinogens, a voluntary covenant signed by various partners, which Germany officially joined in November 2019. Germany will address this priority together with European and national occupational safety and health representatives, experts from the European Chemicals Regulation and the European Commission.
During the conference, various speakers will present important or topical issues from the field of occupational safety and health, such as asbestos-related risks, or possible substitutes for dangerous substances. “Substitution” is the first central element of the STOP principle, which determines the order of priority of protective measures at the workplace. Stakeholders include representatives of governments, government organisations and social partners and will discuss various occupational safety and health solutions during a workshop.
