Newly updated asbestos occupational exposure estimates

This publication describes how the workplace exposure estimates were updated to 2016 for asbestos, including the addition of exposure levels.

Newly updated eWORK now available

eWORK is an interactive tool for exploring CAREX Canada’s occupational exposure estimates to carcinogens.

eWORK is a set of tools developed by our occupational exposures team that allow users to conduct custom queries of the CAREX results database. Two versions of eWORK are available: eWORK Excel and eWORK Online.

CAREX Canada’s exposure summaries are a useful guide for those looking to better understand – and reduce or eliminate – the known or suspected carcinogens that Canadians are exposed to in workplace and community environments.
