CAREX Canada’s package 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. Assembling various CAREX Canada data, tools and resources, these summaries “package” information in various ways; so far we’ve developed summaries by occupation, industry, province, route of exposure, population, cancer site, and exposure source.
A sample of package summaries on occupational exposures is available for viewing below. Have a topic that could be addressed with a package summary? Please get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
