Jan. 12: Grants Fund Research on Healthy & Safe Workplaces


Eight new research projects funded through Alberta’s OHS Futures program last year focus on improving workplace health and safety in the province. The grants provide up to $1 million in funding each year to help researchers at academic institutions, industry associations and labour organizations find new ways to study and prevent workplace hazards. Projects funded in 2016 explore a wide range of workplace issues, including worker exposure to welding fumes and non-reported work-related injuries among licensed practical nurses.
