Scope and content

From the early to mid 1970s, Nancy Tait fashioned herself into a lay expert on occupational and environmental health hazards, initially chiefly those posed by asbestos.

This took several forms, such as: testifying before commissions and committees, advising and consulting during ongoing inquiries, participating in relevant panels, or commenting on consultation papers. The boundaries between Tait's expert witnessing / consulting work and her advocacy activities (see link below) are somewhat blurred.
