Participatory approach to health and safety in long-term care

Created: October 2019

Long-term care homes are high-risk environments, and strategies to reduce workplace injuries are essential to protecting long-term care workers and the quality of care provided to residents. This video whiteboard explains why and how a participatory approach to injury prevention can help prevent injuries by involving front-line staff in the identification and control of workplace hazards. The video is the product of an IWH study evaluating the implementation of a Public Services Health and Safety Association program that encouraged long-term care homes in Ontario to take a participatory approach to the reduction of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs).
