Abstract This campaign focussed on four sectors of activity, namely mechanical engineering, plastics processing, the manufacture of paints and varnishes, and the refractory ceramic fibres sector. It was concentrated on a limited number of products: trichloroethylene, lead compounds, phthalates, chromates, MBOCA and refractory ceramic fibres. Close to 2000 enterprises were visited, among which 900 reported using CMRs (carcinogenic, mutagenic and reprotoxic substances). The survey attempted to define the practices adopted by enterprises with respect to the identification of CMRs, hazard analysis, substitution methodology and preventive measures.
