Activity Plan

Activity Plan 2017 coverEvery year, the Institute for Work & Health puts together an Activity Plan detailing the research projects to be undertaken at the Institute that year.

This year’s plan includes many activities that support the priorities identified in the Ontario Ministry of Labour’s prevention strategy―Healthy and Safe Ontario Workplaces: A Strategy for Transforming Occupational Health and Safety―released in December 2013.

Examples include research to: describe the circumstances of vulnerable workers, find effective interventions to mitigate the risks of hazardous work (particularly in the area of non-traumatic musculoskeletal disorders), develop leading indicators of workplace occupational health and safety performance, and support workplace practices in the prevention of work disability.
