||Chemical agents that are carcinogenic, mutagenic and reprotoxic (CMRs) continue to be widely used in occupational settings. The chemical and pharmaceutical industries are the main primary users of these agents. French regulations require that employers take all the necessary measures to ensure the safety and health of employees who are either exposed or risk being exposed to CMRs or other dangerous substances at the place of work. This article comments the main findings of a study on the use of CMRs in France in 2005, based on a literature survey together with interviews of occupational hygiene experts and safety officers within enterprises.
