New study to gauge workplace cancer in Ontario

A groundbreaking study being conducted by the Occupational Cancer Research Centre is looking to determine the prevalance of work-related cancer in Canada. The study will look at the effect of workplace cancer on workers as well as the system in hopes of establishing future preventive measures.

The Occupational Cancer Research Centre (OCRC) is embarking on a study to determine how many work-related cancers occur in Ontario and Canada. The study — the first of its kind for these regions — will look at the burden of occupational cancer (i.e., its impact on humans, including death, sickness and lost time), as well its economic costs. In addition, it will help to determine which prevention activities will have the most impact in the future.
