Lucille Servidio to be a Keynote Speaker at the Cancer Council of Australia’s 'Cancer in the Workplace' Forum

April 17, 2012

Capaccio Environmental Engineering, Inc.’s Senior Vice President, Lucy Servidio, CHMM,
TURP, will be among the keynote speakers at the Cancer Council of Australia’s 'Cancer in the
Workplace' forum in Carlton, Victoria, Australia. The national forum is set to take place on May
3, 2012. The forum will provide practical solutions for prevention and is open to occupational
health and safety professionals, industry representatives, unions, researchers, public health
professionals, and anyone with an interest in occupational cancers.

Ms. Servidio will present information on how and why Massachusetts adopted the Toxics Use
Reduction Act (TURA) more than 20 years ago. She will highlight the law’s importance of
reducing the amount of toxics in industry and its role in keeping workers and communities safe.
Ms. Servidio will outline how TURA has evolved and changed over the years and provide
information on how TURA has helped to reduce carcinogens in the workplace. Attendees will
receive information on how to create and implement a TUR Plan, and Ms. Servidio will present
case studies showing how some Massachusetts companies developed TUR Plans and made
their processes more effective while reducing their use of toxic materials.
