Priorities for research activities and methodologies have been proposed, for example by Ward et al as part of the National Occupational Research Agenda (NORA) in the United States.

With so many potential exposures to consider for control activities, it becomes challenging for those who work in the prevention sector (such as various levels of. Furthermore, only one policy framework for the prevention of occupational cancer was found. Although consideration was given to the proposed prevention policies in this latter study, it was not a prospective health policy analysis and lacked a systematic and comprehensive consideration of parameters in order to develop its prevention policies.

Primary prevention of cancer refers to the prevention of new cases of cancer, whereas secondary prevention is aimed at reducing the negative health effects of the disease by early detection or treatment.

There are three basic steps in the process of cancer prevention: risk identification, risk quantification, and risk reduction. The conference held in Asturias, Spain, on 17–18 March reinforced the understanding that many cancers of environmental and occupational origin such as lung cancer, mesothelioma, and melanoma are preventable and advocated for integrating primary prevention of environmental and occupational cancers into a global cancer agenda.

Occupational cancer is caused wholly or partly by exposure to a cancer causing agent (carcinogen) at work, or by a particular set of circumstances at work.

Cancer is not a single disease with a single cause or treatment. It develops when cells in the body grow in an uncontrolled and abnormal way. Prevention. Many occupational cancers are preventable.

Personal protective gear, workplace controls, and worker education can prevent exposure to carcinogens in the workplace.

Tobacco smoking has also been shown to increase the risk of work-related cancers; decreasing or abstaining from smoking can decrease cancer risk. To aid in the prevention of occupational cancer, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) develops guidance to protect workers from adverse effects of occupational carcinogens.

Tobacco. Worldwide, tobacco. Abstract. We present a model to plan a rational strategy for cancer prevention that has two main functions--assessment and intervention. The assessment function includes three main components: to identify populations at high cancer risk, which may be due to their ethnic group, occupational and environmental exposures, family history, cigarette smoking, or other risk factors; to assess exposure.

To our knowledge, this is the first proposal for a comprehensive policy framework dedicated to the primary prevention of occupational cancer. The framework can be adapted and applied by key policy players in Canada and other countries as a guide of what parameters to consider when developing policies to protect workers’ health.
