Safe Home Care and Hospitals

About Us

The Safe Home Care and Sustainable Hospitals Program conducts both occupational and public safety and health research to provide science-based technical guidance for policy makers and for health and home care industries. The results of our research aim at promoting practices, products and policies that address three essential “safeties” in both home care and health care: occupational safety, environmental safety, and patient/client/consumer safety.

Who We Are
We are scientists, medical professionals, engineers, epidemiologists and policy makers who promote occupational safety and health both in home care and healthcare industries through rigorous research.

What's Our Strategy
We work with our community partners to make sure the research is useful for improving both home care and health care practices.
