Providing evidence that supports the reduction of serious work injuries and illnesses and that reduces disability duration is a cross-cutting focus of Partnership research. Our current areas of focus include:
- Evaluation of occupational health and safety programs and regulations, such as the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board of Ontario’s return to work policies and practices in the construction sector, WorkSafeBC’s Certificate of Recognition audit program and a realist evaluation of the BC violence prevention curriculum in the health care sector.
- Development of a national and international comparative research agenda.
- Identification of gender and sex differences in the risk of work injury, compensation policy, and return to work.
Do differences in work disability duration by interjurisdictional claim status vary by industry and jurisdictional context?
