Making it All Easier: Knowledge Mobilization & Tools
November 24: 1-3 PM
This webinar will explore translating the science of occupational injury and illness prevention into helpful tools for workers and workplaces to reduce risk of injury and disease on the job.
Learn about the workplace user experience with the Silica Control Tool Pilot in Ontario , specifically during Heritage stone mason work. The tool creates task-specific respirable crystalline silica (RCS) exposure estimates for controlled and uncontrolled common construction exposure scenarios.
Reducing Risk: Chemical Management for Small Businesses & The Changing Workplace
Understand simple hazard and risk assessment approaches that can be used by small businesses and will discuss how to improve the use of SDSs in hazard communication and worker training.
Real-Time Worker Protection using Control Banding
Learn about control band strategies for welding, and the UK’s Breathe Freely Welding Fume Control Selector Tool.
CAREX Canada eWORK Online
CAREX Canada launched their newly updated eWORK Online this past month, which is an interactive tool for exploring CAREX Canada’s occupational exposure estimates to known and suspected carcinogens. The tool shows the number of workers exposed to these carcinogens nationally, by province, by industry, and by occupation for our new 2016 exposure estimates. Join us to learn more about CAREX Canada’s occupational exposures estimates and how the tool works!
OHCOW will share a short demo of the Diesel Exposure Tool as presented in the November 3 Diesel Exhaust Exposure -Influencing Change Webinar.
