B040 - Construction Safety Magazine (Winter 2007/8)

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

This issue of Construction Safety magazine describes the most common hazards and how to control them.
