International Symposium on the Challenges of Workplace Injury Prevention through Financial Incentives
November 29-30, 2012 • 89 Chestnut Conference Centre, Toronto, Canada
In today’s competitive global economy, financial incentives are often seen by governments as an effective way to encourage workplaces to invest in occupational health and safety (OHS). But how well do these financial incentives work, and how can they be implemented to work effectively? This symposium will provide a forum for researchers, students, policy-makers, injured worker communities, employer organizations, worker organizations and other stakeholders to discuss the social, economic and policy implications of using financial incentives as a mechanism for preventing workplace injuries.
