Proposal to Further Protect European Workers from Asbestos

Proposal to Further Protect European Workers from Asbestos

The European Commission adopted a communication and submitted a legislative proposal on the protection of workers from the risks related to asbestos exposure at work on September 28,2022. It aims to update the existing binding occupational exposure limit value for asbestos, considering the latest scientific development and technical progress.

Asbestos is a highly dangerous cancer-causing agent and despite its EU ban in 2005, it continues to pose a considerable threat to public health and workers, especially in the construction, maintenance and waste sectors. An integrated approach across several policy areas, including occupational safety and health (OSH), is required to tackle its ill-fated legacy.

The Commission and EU-OSHA calls upon their networks and stakeholders to engage in initiatives working towards an asbestos-free future and protecting health and safety at work of those potentially exposed to asbestos.
