Agents fibrogènes et cancérogènes dans les mines d’or et de fer du Québec - Étude exploratoire
De récentes études ont mis en évidence que les travailleurs des mines d’or du Dakota et des mines de fer du Minnesota sont exposés à des particules minérales allongées (PMA). En particulier, les mineurs du Minnesota présentent un risque plus élevé de décès par cancer du poumon, par mésothéliome et par maladies cardiaques que la population générale. Comme l’intérêt renouvelé pour l’exploration de nouveaux gisements d’or et de fer dans le Nord...
Welding, Molybdenum Trioxide, and Indium Tin Oxide
IARC Monographs on the Evaluation of Carcinogenic Risks to Humans Volume 118 This volume of the IARC Monographs provides evaluations of the carcinogenicity of welding and welding fumes, molybdenum trioxide, and indium tin oxide. Worldwide, an estimated 11 million workers have a job title of welder, and around 110 million additional workers probably incur welding-related exposures. Welding can involve exposures to fumes, gases, ultraviolet radiation and electromagnetic fields, and co-exposures to asbestos and solvents. The extent and type of exposure can depend on the process used, the material...
Australian Work Exposure Study (AWES) - Carcinogen Exposures Construction Industry
A random, population-based sample of 5528 Australian workers participated in the Australian Work Exposure Study (AWES). Workers answered questions about the tasks they completed and the controls used at work. Based on their responses to those questions, the likelihood of exposure to 38 known or suspected carcinogens was estimated. The AWES focused on the most common tasks performed at work. Workers were not asked directly about their exposures to carcinogens and exposure levels were not measured in the workplace. This report describes the responses provided by 459 AWES participants categorised...

Australian Work Exposures Study (AWES) - Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs)
The Australian Work Health and Safety Strategy 2012-2022 (the Strategy) describes work-related cancer as a priority disorder and understanding current hazardous exposures and the effectiveness of controls as a research priority. The Australian Work Exposures Study (AWES) was a national survey that investigated work-related exposures among Australian workers to 38 agents classified by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) as known or suspected carcinogens. Some polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are classified as a known or suspected human carcinogens by the IARC and the work...
Australian Work Exposures Study (AWES) - Formaldehyde
The Australian Work Health and Safety Strategy 2012-2022 (the Strategy) describes work-related cancer as a priority disorder and understanding current hazardous exposures and the effectiveness of controls as a research priority. The Australian Work Exposures Study (AWES) was a national survey that investigated work-related exposures among Australian workers to 38 agents classified by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) as known or suspected carcinogens. Formaldehyde is classified as a known human carcinogen by the IARC and the work described in this report uses AWES data to:...
Australian Work Exposures Study (AWES) - Lead and lead compounds
The Australian Work Health and Safety Strategy 2012-2022 (the Strategy) describes work-related cancer as a priority disorder and understanding current hazardous exposures and the effectiveness of controls as a research priority. The Australian Work Exposures Study (AWES) was a national survey that investigated work-related exposures among Australian workers to 38 agents classified by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) as known or suspected carcinogens. Some forms of lead are considered to be probable carcinogens and the work described in this report uses AWES data to: •...
Introducing the SINLIST
ChemSec, The International Chemical Secretariat, is a non-profit organisation dedicated to working towards a toxic free environment. Based in Göteborg, Sweden, ChemSec was founded in 2002 by four Swedish environmental organisations: Swedish Society for Nature Conservation, WWF Sweden, Nature and Youth and Friends of the Earth Sweden. These NGOs are the ChemSec member organisations and are represented on the ChemSec board. ChemSec operates through support from a broad spectrum of society. A main contributor is the Swedish Government, but ChemSec also receives financial support from charitable...
US adds formaldehyde to list of carcinogens
As reported by Reuters, the U.S. government has added formaldehyde, a substance found in plastics and other commonly used products, to a list of known carcinogens and warned that the chemical styrene might cause cancer. In a report prepared for the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), scientists warned that people with higher exposure to formaldehyde were more at risk for nasopharyngeal cancer, myeloid leukaemia and other cancers.

NL-Carcinogenicity – evaluation of dinitrobenzene isomers and 1,2-catechol
At request of the Minister of Social Affairs and Employment, the Health Council of the Netherlands evaluates and judges the carcinogenic properties of substances to which workers are occupationally exposed. The evaluation is performed by the subcommittee on Classifying Carcinogenic Substances of the Dutch Expert Committee on Occupational Safety of the Health Council, hereafter called the Committee. The Committee evaluated dinitrobenzene isomers. Dinitrobenzenes are used in the production of dyes, explosives, fibres, and as camphor substitute in cellulose nitrate. The Committee concludes that the...
Six substances chimiques dangereuses seront interdites dans l’UE d'ici à 2015
La Commission européenne a décidé jeudi d'interdire "dans les trois à cinq ans à venir" six substances utilisées dans l'industrie en raison de leurs dangers pour la santé. Les six substances sont le musk xylène, le diaminodiphénylméthane (MDA), l'hexabromocyclododécane (HBCDD), le bis (2-éthylexyl) phtalate (DEHP), le benzyl butyl phtalate (BBP) et le dibutyl phtalate (DBP). Ces six substances chimiques ont été identifiées comme cancérigènes ou toxiques pour...
