Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety OSH Answers fact sheets

The Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety provides answers to questions in two ways – through its online OSH Answers fact sheets, and through its person-to-person information service.

Presented in an easy-to-read question-and-answer format, OSH Answers covers an extensive range of topic areas in workplace health and safety, from hazards to diseases to ergonomics to workplace promotion. These topics are based on questions that the Inquiries Service has received from workers, their families, health and safety committee members, employers, occupational hygienists, safety professionals, doctors, nurses and other health care professionals, government officials, lawyers, the media, and the general public over the years. The number of fact sheets continues to grow as new questions and topics are raised by inquirers.

To inquire about an occupational health and safety topic e-mail or call the Inquiries Service. It’s a free, reliable, confidential person-to-person information service available to all Canadians, and has been for over 30 years. For details visit https://www.ccohs.ca/oshanswers/about.html
