Abstract This article serves as an introduction to a seminar entitled "Ending bladder cancer at the workplace", organized by the INRS in Paris in March 2007. It provides information on the disease and reviews preventive measures such as the prohibition or restriction of use of substances known to cause bladder cancer and modifications in industrial processes. It concludes that, while there is still much to be achieved, the level of exposure has been reduced.
