Occupational and Environmental Health Seminar

Title: Burden of Occupational Cancer in Ontario: Major Workplace Carcinogens and Prevention of Exposure

In October 2017, the Occupational Cancer Research Centre (OCRC) and Cancer Care Ontario released a report on the impact of workplace carcinogens in Ontario.  The report, “Burden of Occupational Cancer in Ontario: Major Workplace Carcinogens and Prevention of Exposure,” focused on carcinogens that are well-established causes of cancer: solar ultraviolet radiation, asbestos, diesel engine exhaust and crystalline silica. Additionally, it examines the most commonly known or suspected carcinogens found in Ontario workplaces and highlights opportunities for prevention at the policy level, as well as in workplaces.  This presentation will provide a brief overview of the methods used for the report,  an overview of the key findings, and recommendations. 

The report is available here: https://www.cancercare.on.ca/ocs/csurv/info/cancer_risk_factors_in_ontario/occupationreport 

Presenter:  Dr.  Paul Demers

Paul Demers is the Director of the Occupational Cancer Research Centre, a Professor with the University of Toronto, and the Scientific Director of CAREX Canada.  He is an epidemiologist whose research focuses on occupational cancer and chronic diseases.  He has been a member of many national and international expert panels with organizations such as International Agency for Research on Cancer (WHO), UN Environment Program, Canadian Cancer Society, Royal Society of Canada, US National Academy of Sciences, US National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, and the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists.
