Doctoral studies investigating workplace health

Every 15 seconds, a worker dies from a work-related accident or disease.* The Faculty of Applied Health Sciences offers the first interdisciplinary PhD program in Canada with a focus on Work and Health.

Concerns about workplace health are occurring in the context of rapid change in both the composition of the workforce and the nature of work. All of these developments point toward the need for academics and professionals who are better equipped to face the challenges of work related health in the 21st Century.
