Visualising carcinogens in the workplace

CBC News has published an interactive database on carcinogens in the workplace.

The visualisation is the result of a collaborative project between the UBC Graduate School of Journalism, CBC and CAREX Canada, a research initiative cataloguing Canadians’ exposure to carcinogens while on the job.

The aim of the collaboration was to highlight exposure to cancer-causing chemicals in the workplace.

The project involved Candis Callison and myself from the j-school faculty, together with Anne-Marie Nicol, an assistant professor in the UBC School of Population and Public Health and executive director of CAREX.

Two j-school students, Aleksandra Sagan and Sam Eifling worked as researchers on CBC News database.
