OCRC Report: National Occupational Disease and Exposure Surveillance Workshop Summary

The National Occupational Disease and Exposure Surveillance workshop was held on November 7-8, 2019. The goal of the workshop was to enhance inter-provincial communication and collaboration across a broader and more diverse audience by inviting participants from various Canadian jurisdictions to learn about the surveillance efforts in Ontario as well as share their relevant experiences and expertise. The workshop was structured to allow for significant interaction and effective roundtable discussions about ways to facilitate national collaboration for occupational disease and exposure surveillance.
