Les lieux de travail de l’Ontario sont-ils sécuritaires et le deviennent-ils davantage?
Il s’agit d’une mesure unique et simple. Notre indice de santé et de sécurité combine de multiples indicateurs de rendement en santé et sécurité en une seule mesure fondée sur les preuves. Cette mesure ou note permet de mieux sensibiliser le public et d’aider les partenaires du système à concentrer leurs efforts et ressources de santé et de sécurité. Les gens se sentent habilités au travail et le nombre moins élevé de demandes pour lésions graves a eu l’effet positif...
Gender differences in injuries attributed to workplace violence in Ontario 2002-2015
Objectives: The aim of the study is to compare trends in the incidence of injury resulting from workplace violence for men and women at the population level over the period 2002–2015 among working-age adults in Ontario, Canada. Methods: Administrative records of injury resulting from workplace violence were obtained from two population-based data sources in Ontario: 21 228 lost-time workers' compensation claims (2002–2015) and 13 245 records of non-scheduled emergency department visits (2004–2014), where the main problem was attributed to a workplace violence...
A study of leading indicators for occupational health and safety management systems in healthcare
Background: In Ontario, Canada, approximately $2.5 billion is spent yearly on occupational injuries in the healthcare sector. The healthcare sector has been ranked second highest for lost-time injury rates among 16 Ontario sectors since 2009 with female healthcare workers ranked the highest among all occupations for lost-time claims. There is a great deal of focus in Ontario's occupational health and safety system on compliance and fines, however despite this increased focus, the injury statistics are not significantly improving. One of the keys to changing this trend is the development of...

Ontario - L’indice de santé et de sécurité
Les lieux de travail de l’Ontario sont-ils sécuritaires et le deviennent-ils davantage? L’indice de santé et de sécurité est conçu pour répondre à cette simple question. Il s’agit d’une mesure unique. Cette mesure montrera en un coup d’œil l’ensemble des changements en matière de santé et de sécurité dans les lieux de travail en Ontario d’une année à l’autre. L’indice de santé et de sécurité nous indiquer où nous devons...
Divergent trends in work-related and non-work-related injury in Ontario
An Institute for Work & Health study found strongly diverging trends in the annual incidence of occupational injury and non-occupational injury among working-age adults in Ontario from 2004 to 2011. This Issue Briefing summarizes the findings of that study and then, drawing on lessons from the study, highlights opportunities to improve the monitoring of injury across all Canadian provinces and territories.

Exploring the Usefulness of Occupational Exposure Registries for Surveillance
The Case of the Ontario Asbestos Workers Registry (1986–2012) Objective: The ongoing presence of asbestos in products used across workplaces in Canada reinforces the importance of occupational exposure surveillance. This study evaluates the usefulness of the Ontario Asbestos Workers Registry. Methods: The study includes 30,829 workers aged 15 to 80 years. Researchers reported on the data quality and analyzed the proportions of workers exposed by industry, and standardized rates by geographic areas and over time. Results: The incidence of exposure started to decrease around 1990; but about...
Time trends in musculoskeletal disorders attributed to work exposures in Ontario using three independent data sources, 2004–2011
Objective: Work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are the leading cause of work disability in the developed economies. The objective of this study was to describe trends in the incidence of MSDs attributed to work exposures in Ontario over the period 2004–2011. Methods: An observational study of work-related morbidity obtained from three independent sources for a complete population of approximately six million occupationally active adults aged 15–64 in the largest Canadian province. We implemented a conceptually concordant case definition for work-related non-traumatic MSDs...
Work-related musculoskeletal disorders on the decline in Ontario
Work-related musculoskeletal disorders appear to be on the decline in Ontario. That’s what findings from a comprehensive population-based surveillance study recently done by the Institute for Work & Health (IWH) would suggest. The study, led by IWH president Dr. Cameron Mustard, tracks the occurrence of work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) over eight years between 2004 and 2011. It uses three independent population databases to take a count of work-related MSDs as reported by the total number of Ontarians active in the labour force in that time period—a sample of about...
Developing leading indicators of work injury and illness
Leading indicators of work injury and illness are characteristics of workplaces that precede occupational health and safety (OHS) outcomes and, if changed, are expected to lead to changes in these outcomes. As a result, leading indicators have the potential to help identify factors affecting the risk of injury, allowing workplaces to address these factors before injuries occur. This Issue Briefing looks at efforts to date to identify OHS leading indicators, the challenges involved, and the work being done at the Institute for Work & Health to identify the best and most usable set of management...
Work disability trajectories under three workers compensation programs
Since the early 1990s, the time on benefits has been increasing for Ontario workers' compensation claims. In particular, over the last decade there has been a notable increase in the number of total compensated days per lost-time claim and an increase in the rate of claims remaining active and open for extended periods of time. This trend is in contrast to the trend of declining claim rates experienced over much of the 1990s. This plenary profiles a study that investigated how Ontario workers' compensation claimants from different time periods fared in terms of labour-market earnings recovery...
Examining job tenure and lost-time claim rates in Ontario, Canada, over a 10-year period, 1999–2008
Objective: We sought to examine the association between job tenure and lost-time claim rates over a 10-year period in Ontario, Canada. Methods: Data were obtained from workers' compensation records and labour force survey data from 1999 to 2008. Claim rates were calculated for gender, age, industry, occupation, year and job tenure group. A multivariate analysis and examination of effect modification were performed. Differences in injury event and source of injury were also examined by job tenure. Results: Lost-time claim rates were significantly higher for workers with shorter job tenure, regardless...
Comparison of data sources for the surveillance of work injury
Objective : The objective of this study was to compare the incidence of work-related injury and illness presenting to Ontario emergency departments to the incidence of worker's compensation claims reported to the Ontario Workplace Safety & Insurance Board over the period 2004-2008.Methods : Records of work-related injury were obtained from two administrative data sources in Ontario for the period 2004-2008: workers' compensation lost-time claims (N=435 336) and records of non-scheduled emergency department visits where the main problem was attributed to a work-related exposure (N=707...
