Advisory Board

Our Advisory Board is composed of highly experienced and successful leaders from industry, labour and OHS-focused organizations. They provide advice on the strategic direction of CROSH and guide our research efforts by advising on the occupational health and safety research needs for Northern Ontario industries, workplaces, and communities.

We’re currently looking for people to join our Advisory Board. If you’re interested or would like to know more, please email CROSH Director Dr. Sandra Dorman.
