Two Appointed to Canada's Hazardous Materials Information Review Commission

Tony Clement, Canada's Minister of Health, has made two appointments to the Council of Governors of the Hazardous Materials Information Review Commission. Clements on March 7 announced the reappointment of Sean Casey and the appointment of Alec Farquhar for three-year terms.

"I am confident that Mr. Casey and Mr. Farquhar will be strong assets to the Hazardous Materials Information Review Commission. The experience they both bring to the commission will contribute to achieving its mandate of protecting both workers as well as trade secrets in Canada's chemical industry," Clement said. Casey was reappointed as the representative of Newfoundland and Labrador on the council; he is the province's Senior Industrial Hygienist and has extensive experience in safety planning, chemical hazards, and emergency response. Casey has a Graduate Diploma in Industrial Hygiene from the University of Toronto and is a Certified Public Health Inspector. Farquhar was appointed as the Ontario representative on the commission. He has a law degree from the University of Toronto and is currently Director of Occupational Health and Safety at the Ministry of Labour in Toronto.

The commission was created as an independent agency in 1987 by proclamation of the Hazardous Materials Information Review Act and is accountable to the Parliament of Canada through the Minister of Health.
