Spanish Government to Reduce Protection for Workers Exposed to Cancer-Causing Substances
The Spanish government has proposed a draft decree transposing the revised EU Directive (2004/37/EC) on carcinogens or mutagens at work, reducing the protection for workers against cancer-causing substances, allegedly boosting the competitiveness of companies. The decree allows for twice as much exposure to crystalline silica, triple the maximum amount for acrylamide and double the exposure for bromo-ethylene.
