2017 Research Projects and Reports

In 2017, WorkplaceNL funded the following research projects:

  • Eastern Health – Reducing Injury through Safe-Handling and Improving Early and Safe Return to Work. Research funding is supporting a multi-faceted evaluation of the main causes of lost-time injury by assessing the Early and Safe Return to Work Program (ESRTW), the Safe-Resident Handling Program, and the Safe-Materials Handling Program, termed the Safer Together Initiative. This initiative is assessing a number of indicators including employee injuries, duration of lost-time, safety climate, and staff awareness and satisfaction.
