Conference on occupational cancer among firefighters in the Nordic countries

Initiator: Liselott Blixt, Nordisk Frihed

"Fair protection of firefighters against occupational cancer"

How big is the problem of occupational cancer? Can it be prevented and how can we as politicians protect our firefighters, who risk their life and health for our societies?

What does science say?

The toxicity of a "modern" fire?

How are harmful substances absorbed in the body?

Is the Danish and Nordic workers compensation board system significantly different than in other countries?

How do the authorities treat cancer stricken firefighters?

What has been done in other countries for a "fair protection" of firefighters?

How do we move on in the Nordic countries?

Is legislation the answer?

These and other questions will be considered at the conference with the help of some of the leading authorities in this field.
