Visit our Registration page to sign up for this webinar (password: carex).
Antineoplastic agents (or cytotoxic drugs) are drugs used to treat cancer. They are also associated with increased cancer risk in occupational settings. This webinar will provide information on exposures to antineoplastics in Canadian workplaces and facilitate a discussion about how to best address them.
Presented in partnership with WorkSafeBC, the webinar will feature CAREX Canada's recently updated estimates of who's exposed to antineoplastic agents in Canada, where those exposures are occurring, and to what extent workers may be exposed. WorkSafeBC will outline best practices for reducing exposures to antineoplastic agents in the workplace, including legal requirements, risk assessment, and control mechanisms. The webinar will include ample time for discussion about the many unknowns that remain in characterizing and acting upon this exposure.
Discussion panelists include:
