Preventing the Burden of Occupational Cancer in Canada
The OCRC hosted a stakeholder meeting on preventing the burden of occupational cancer in Canada on November 5, 2015. The focus of the meeting was on preliminary findings from the Burden of Occupational Cancer in Canada
study, and how the results can be used in prevention initiatives. It provided an overview of the study’s early results, focusing on asbestos, radon and diesel exhaust.
