Occupational Health

In Ontario, occupational diseases have caused the deaths of more workers or former workers in the past ten years than occupational injuries have. Most of these diseases were caused by past exposure to asbestos.

Non-fatal diseases, such as noise-induced hearing loss, affect hundreds of workers in Ontario every year. The threats to your health are real.

This section provides information on the most common hazards and how to control them.
