||The findings of a survey carried out in three hospitals in the Greater Paris area, aimed at collecting data on occupational exposure to carcinogens among cancer patients, are presented. Between 2002 and 2006, a total of 665 patients participated in the study. Data were collected by means of physician-administered questionnaires during structured interviews. Findings are discussed with reference to the sectors of activity that involve exposure to carcinogens (building, woodworking, mechanical engineering, metalworking, vehicle servicing, cleaning and agriculture). It was found that workers were often exposed to several carcinogens during their working life.
