||Each year, there are approximately 10,000 new cases of bladder cancer incidence in France, among which the number of cases due to occupational exposures is estimated at between 600 and 1100. In the construction sector, coal tar pitch used in roofing is a known carcinogen. Occupational exposures likely to cause bladder cancer have decreased. However, further progress is still required for screening and preventing this disease in occupational settings. Besides a brief review of occupational bladder cancer, an occupational physician answers a few questions on exposure hazards, the low proportion of bladder cancers that are recognized as being due to occupational factors and preventive measures.
