Tools

We have developed additional tools to help users explore the data used for our estimates and indicators, and to facilitate access to a wide range of spatial data about known and suspected carcinogens in outdoor environments.

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.

eWORK Excel is a Microsoft Excel-based tool capable of handling complex filters and queries. It is available by request. Please email us at info@carexcanada.ca if you’re interested in obtaining a copy.

eWORK Online is for users who prefer quick, accessible, yet high quality statistics on occupational exposures to various carcinogens.

eRISK is a set of tools developed by our environmental exposures team that allow users to explore various exposure scenarios. Users can:

  • compare the lifetime excess cancer risk (LECR) associated with various environmental exposures, and
  • use local data to see how the risk indicators might differ from the national levels.

Two versions of eRISK are available:

eRISK Access is the previous version of this tool. Please contact info@carexcanada.ca to request a copy and note that you will need Microsoft Access 2007 or 2010 installed on your computer to use it.

eRISK Online is an interactive, web-based version with a built-in comparison function.

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.
