Abstract: The Toronto Occupational Health Resource Committee (TOHRC) has been set up to address workplace health and safety issues from a worker's point of view. It publishes a newsletter ($5 per year), holds meetings, and engages in other educational activities, with the aim of providing health and safety information; a forum for the discussion of policies and politics of workplace health and safety; a network of information resources people, and an exchange of information and ideas among those interested and concerned with occupational health. TOHRC hopes to "offer an alternative to the occupational health and safety positions of industry, government, and the Workers Compensation Board."
Recent newsletter articles have dealt with risks of lead pollution; the campaign of the Toxic Substances Coalition for the right of workers to know what substances they are being exposed to; waste handling in hospitals; and occupational health services at community clinics.
This organization no longer exists.
