Western Canada workers have higher risk of injury: study

Further study needs to be done to understand the reason why workers from western Canada have a higher risk of work-related injury than their counterparts in the east, according to one scientist from the Institute of Work and Health (IWH). A recent IWH study revealed workers in Alberta, Saskatchewan and British Columbia have a 30 to 50 per cent higher risk of work injury than Ontario workers. The result is true even after controlling for other work-related risk factors such as demographics and work characteristics, said Curtis Breslin, the IWH scientist who led the study.
