Event Details

The NCCEH eJournal Club is a series of informal hour-long sessions discussing and appraising articles relating to environmental health. Active participation is encouraged. Although these sessions are directed at public health inspectors, anyone interested in a given topic is more than welcome to take part.


Instructions for joining the session online will be included in the registration confirmation email.



Details for the next session

Title of paper: A medical-toxicological view of tattooing (Laux et al., 2016)


Questions to consider:

  • Have you, or a colleague, inspected a personal service establishment that offers tattooing?  If so, are you aware of provincial legislation or municipal by-laws that cover this practice?
  • What kinds of adverse effects or complications related to tattooing or tattoo removal have you encountered professionally?
  • What are some other types of tattooing, and their potential health risks, that are not covered in this review?
