Meet Our Speaker
Senior Program Officer at Health Canada
Chemicals in Our Home
“Throughout our lives, we are exposed to chemicals and pollutants – in our air, food, and water. There are chemicals in everyday products we use at work, at home, and at play. While some chemicals may be beneficial to our health, others may pose a health risk if they’re not handled properly. In this presentation, Health Canada will provide ten simple steps you can take to help protect you and those you care to support a healthy home.“
“White chemical substances provide benefits, they may also have harmful effects on human health and the environment. Health Canada’s Healthy Home campaign provides simple steps to make your home safer, especially for people who may be more vulnerable to chemicals and pollutants” Radsheed Sulman
