Industry experts, OH&S professionals and academics gathered in Sydney in May 2015, for the ‘kNOw your cancer risks at work’ forum, hosted by Cancer Council Australia. The event focused on occupational cancer risks within Australia and abroad, namely those associated with diesel engine exhaust, asbestos, pesticides, firefighting and shift work.
