IWH Scientist Dr. Lynda Robson is discussing an evidence-based model for making large improvements in occupational health and safety (OHS) and its implications on professional practice at the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS)'s 2016 national forum, taking place February 29 and March 1 in Vancouver, B.C.
The forum will bring together subject experts, OHS and human resources professionals, employers, and representatives from labour and government to discuss how the evolving workplace affects our collective health and safety. Experts, like Robson, will explore the health and safety implications from the latest findings on sex and gender, climate change, mental health, and other emerging concepts.
The forum will also include an Innovation Showcase, featuring innovations and best practices in work injury and illness prevention. For more information on attending this national CCOHS conference, visit its website: http://www.ccohs.ca/events/forum16/default.html
