Title Four short video sequences on the prevention of occupational cancers
Original title Quatre spots pour la prÚvention des cancers professionnels [in French]
Bibliographic information Institut national de recherche et de sÚcuritÚ, 30 rue Olivier-Noyer, 75680 Paris Cedex 14, France, 2006. DVD containing video files readable on a DVD player, or on PC-Windows or Mackintosh equipped with a DVD-ROM player.
Abstract Cancer is currently the second cause of death in France, responsible for approximately 150,000 deaths each year. Occupational risk factors are often unnoticed, even though various studies estimate that four to eight percent of all cancers are occupational in nature. These approximately two-minute video sequences can be used during information meetings on occupational cancer, as an introduction to discussions. Topics addressed: radiological diagnosis of lung cancer in an automobile mechanic exposed to asbestos; use of respirators in stone dressing; renal cancer in a retired flooring layer long time exposed to solvents; legal proceedings introduced against the owner of a plastics processing enterprise by two employees diagnosed with bladder cancer.
