Policy and program evaluation

Evaluation of policies and programs is a key part of maintaining and improving their effectiveness. Partnership researchers conduct independent, credible, and high quality evaluations of occupational health policies and programs. We work with multiple stakeholders, including employer, labour, and health care provider groups, to help understand the impact of these programs and where there are opportunities for improvement. This research also contributes to the broader scientific evidence base on the effectiveness of occupational health and workers compensation policy and regulation.

Ongoing and future research in this area is focused on the evaluation of occupational health and safety programs and regulations, especially those that target serious injuries or long duration claims and those that focus on high risk firms and workers, and on a national and international comparative research agenda.
