||Results of the SUMER 2003 survey of workers' exposure to occupational hazards, indicate that an estimated 2.3 million workers are exposed to carcinogens in France. Among the 83 chemicals or chemical families listed in the SUMER questionnaire, 28 are carcinogens, among which four are also classified as mutagens, and three are classified as reprotoxic. Most exposed workers are blue-collar male workers. Many women are exposed in the health and personal care sectors. During the last ten years, there has been a slight increase in exposures to carcinogens, but technical protective measures have become far more widespread. However, more than one third of the exposed workers still do not benefit from these measures.
