||According to various sources, between 625 and 1110 bladder cancers are attributable each year to occupational exposures in France. These levels imply that this disease ranks as the second most important occupational disease, behind lung cancer. Various aromatic amines and aromatic or polycyclic hydrocarbons have been proven aetiologically to cause bladder cancer. The role of nitrosamines and chlorinated solvents is more doubtful. Trends in the use of these substances over the last thirty years were examined. It was found that warnings (or certain regulatory measures) were effective, such as marked decreases in the use of certain aromatic amines and coal tar derivatives, and the use of better-quality cutting oils. However, some pathways to further improvement have yet to be implemented.
