We conduct research and disseminate research findings in an effort to explore the fundamental aspects of the work experience and to inform best practices in creating safe and psychologically healthy workplaces. In addition to operating an extensive research program, our team also works directly with the business community to assess and improve their workplace standards and regulations. We host training workshops and conferences, provide educational resources, and even advise government entities responsible for creating and/or revising health and safety related legislation.
