Occupational cancers masterclass in Qld

Workplace Health and Safety Queensland has a masterclass focusing on occupational cancers.

Designed for all industries, it forms part of the Injury Prevention and Return to Work Masterclass sessions.

Approximately 40% of Australians are exposed to at least one carcinogen in their workplace and around 6.5% of cancer cases are attributable to occupational carcinogens each year. Putting in place control measures for carcinogenic hazards is the only way to reduce cancer risks at work.

This workshop will provide information about different workplace cancer risks, how businesses can manage the risks associated with carcinogens and their obligations under work health and safety laws.

The session is presented by Dr Peter Anderson and Carolyn Topping, and will be held on 30 October 2018 at the Royal International Convention Centre at the Brisbane Showgrounds.
