||Recognizing and Preventing Occupational Disease: Strategies and Recommendations from Canadians
This 67-page paper is a result from the multi-stakeholder, national forum, "New Strategies for Recognizing and Preventing Occupational Disease" ("Forum ’05") hosted by CCOHS March 3-4, 2005.
The goals of this forum were to:
- Provide participants (workers, employers and governments) with current knowledge regarding the recognition and prevention of occupational disease.
- Have participants apply the knowledge gained to provide prevention and recognition strategies that could help to reduce occupational disease in Canada.
- Share the recommendations from the Forum on the CCOHS website, and invite all Canadians to review them and add their viewpoints.
- Share the findings (recommendations and survey results) from the Forum with the Canadian public in a Report and make it widely available, free of charge on the web, and encourage Canadians to continue to participate in the dialogue on occupational disease.
