Faculty Researchers

Our research members lead a diverse range of occupational health and safety projects. Their research projects explore health and safety from a variety of perspectives, like nursing, engineering, computer science, health sciences, kinesiology, ergonomics, rural and northern health, and more. They partner with businesses, government and non-government organizations, and other researchers to help solve the most pressing health and safety problems facing Northern Ontario workplaces today. Our research members and their students have access to leading edge equipment and facilities.
