Abstract About 4% of cancer deaths in the United States are caused by occupational exposures, a rate which is currently thought to underestimate the true burden of occupational cancer. Many of the studies that reported on the health effects of carcinogens were conducted in manufacturing. Aimed at employers in manufacturing industries, this leaflet outlines the strategic goals of a partnership programme between NIOSH and participating enterprises aimed at identifying the most critical workplace issues related to occupational cancer.
