Virtual research day will feature latest on occupational health

CROSHCon will be held this Friday, Jan. 21
Graduate students Kimberly Friesen and Curtis Hancock are showing one of the applications of CROSH's environmental chamber: using the metabolic cart to make physiological measurements while under specific temperature (hot or cold) and humidity conditions.

The Centre for Research in Occupational Safety and Health (CROSH) is hosting a virtual update on the most recent occupational health and safety research being conducted by the organization and its partners.

Scheduled for this Friday, Jan. 21, CROSHCon 2022: Leading the Way features presentations from CROSH's researchers and students, along with brainstorming sessions to discuss future directions for occupational health and safety research. 

This year's keynote speaker is Dr. Linda Duxbury, who will speak about the future of work in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and the challenges employees and employers will face in the next several years.

Areas of focus include hybrid work arrangements, supporting employees exhausted by the pandemic, and how leaders and managers can help their companies and employees manage disruptive change to the workplace.

Registration is required, but the session is free to attend.

Based at Laurentian University in Sudbury, CROSH is the only occupational health and safety research centre dedicated to Northern Ontario, with a focus on engaging workers and workplaces to understand and identify solutions to their unique health and safety challenges.
