Current Activities (2012-2016)

This research initiative aims to diffuse the notion of Quality of Working Life among blue collar workers in industrial settings in Lima, the capital of Peru. By using the Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR) mechanism, researchers and industry partners are working together to identify simple and practical solutions (interventions) to both, the physical and psychosocial risk factors at the workplace that could impact workers' stress, health and satisfaction.
