The WSIB is now accepting proposals for a systematic review: Occupational exposure to respirable crystalline silica (RCS) and lung cancer. The WSIB is seeking to fund one new award for a systematic review that specifically aims to: a) evaluate the evidence for a causal association between occupational exposure to respirable crystalline silica (RCS) and the development of primary site lung cancer (ICD-9 162.9, ICD-10 C33-34); b) explore dose-response relationship by detailed exposure characteristics; and c) identify industries and occupations with high risk of lung cancer.
Please carefully review the specific requirements in the proposal instructions and other relevant information.
