The table break down the lost-time claims and disabling injury claims by source of injury or disease. Identify as the source of injury or disease, the object, substance, element, or bodily motion which directly produced the injury or disease identified in Nature of Injury or Disease.
The table break down the lost-time claims and disabling injury claims by part of body injured. Where the identified injury or disease involves a single part, choose the body part.
The table provides the number of people employment and number of lost-time claims by gender. With the assumption of person-years worked distribution is identical to employment distribution, the lost-time injury frequency rate is calculated.
The table break down the lost-time claims and disabling injury claims by nature of injury or disease. Nature of injury or disease is the name the injury of illness or disease indicated on the source document (eg, for strained back, group to "Sprains, strains, tears").
The table provides the number of people employment and number of lost-time claims by different age group. With the assumption of person-years worked distribution is identical to employment distribution, the lost-time injury frequency rate is calculated.
Aggregate exposure and risk assessments involve the analysis of exposure to a single chemical by multiple pathways and routes of exposure. The pathways of exposure considered in this general principles document include the potential for pesticide residues in food and drinking water, as well as residues from pesticide use in residential, non-occupational environments.
The data is based information reported to Workers’ Compensation Board by March 31 for employers who are required to have WCB accounts. The dataset contain employer-specific information on occupational fatality, lost-time and disabling injury claims and presented as counts and rates. This information allows for the tracking of workplace health and safety performance indicators over time.
weight, body surface area, inhalation rates, ingestion of dust and soil, and drinking water consumption to ensure consistency of approach. Values that are used are representative of the Canadian general population. Exposure is estimated separately for different age groups because of physiological and psychological differences that may affect exposure.
Learn about the health risks of asbestos exposure. Asbestos, if inhaled, can cause cancer and other diseases. There's no consistent convincing evidence that asbestos ingested through drinking water is harmful to your health.
Multiple metabolic, immune and reproductive effects have been reported in fish residing in effluent-impacted sites. Natural stressors such as parasites also have been shown to impact the responses of organisms to chronic exposure to municipal effluent in the St. Lawrence River (Quebec, Canada). In order to comprehensively evaluate the cumulative impacts of anthropogenic and natural stressors on the health of yellow perch, differential mRNA transcription profiles were examined in juvenile females collected from effluent-impacted and upstream sites with low or high infection levels of the larval trematode Apophallus brevis. Transcriptomics was used to identify biological pathways associated with environmental exposure.
