For Workers and Doctors PDF Print E-mail
New brochure on health risks for the pipe trades includes section for doctors

Many family doctors are unaware of health hazards on construction job sites. Because of this, doctors may miss a connection between a patient’s illness and the patient’s job. Doctors may also pass up an opportunity to screen a patient for an occupational disease, or inform a patient about risk factors. 

To address this problem, CSAO and several of Ontario construction’s labour-management health and safety committees have developed a unique tool for both workers and doctors. It’s a four-page booklet on occupational health risks for the pipe trades. It’s intended to be a prototype for additional trade-specific or generic booklets. 

The first section of the booklet is for workers, outlining specific hazards and ways to protect their health. The second section is written for physicians and includes criteria for screening, early detection and diagnosis.
