Brief description About 1.5 million Australians may be currently exposed to carcinogens in their jobs. This estimate is based on European data and we need Australian information in order to direct future Australian research, policy and practice. The project will survey 5000 Australian workers to estimate the exposure to up to 53 prioity occupational chemicals. This will provide a sound basis for estimating the occupational risk of cancers for Australian workers and determining how to decrease the number of cancers caused by work.
