M-CROSH Northern Tour in Kirkland Lake!
October 4, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
The Driving Prevention Through Research Tour arrives at Town Hall in Kirkland Lake on October 4 at 10:00AM.
The Driving Prevention Through Research Tour is visiting 12 communities across Northern Ontario from September 22 through October 5, 2017. The tour will focus on introducing the mobile lab to workplaces and communities with the goal of sharing findings from our current research and learning about the occupational health and safety challenges facing northern workers.”
During the tour, M-CROSH will host lab tours and ask visitors to share key health and safety issues that workers and workplaces face in their community, and throughout the region. This input will help shape a 5-year strategic plan for the Centre. All are welcome to come visit Canada’s first mobile laboratory for occupational safety and health research. The custom designed 40-foot integrated truck/trailer mobile laboratory (established with funding from the Ontario Ministry of Labour) is fully accessible and includes laboratory, meeting, and clinic space to support field research in: mental health and quality of work-life, fatigue, mobile equipment design for accident prevention, vibration induced injury prevention, heat stress, prevention of musculoskeletal disorders, and evaluation of intervention programs; to name a few.
