The SafetyNet Conference 2003, From Research
to Practice: Partnering for Occupational Health and Safety,
will be held Oct. 30-Nov. 1 at the
Fairmont Hotel Newfoundland in St. John’s. “This
is an exciting opportunity to bring together a wide range
of people interested in applied research in workplace health
and safety,” said Dr. Stephen Bornstein, co-director
of SafetyNet along with Dr. Barbara Neis. “We have
invited researchers, policy makers, labour, employers, regulators,
as well as other community stakeholders and others from
across the Atlantic region and the rest of Canada interested
in occupational health and safety research.”
The conference will focus on a wide range
of issues in research and its applications, including health
and safety in rural/remote, marine or resource-based sectors,
community university partnerships in research and questions
of privacy and ethics in this type of research.
The conference will also begin the dissemination of preliminary
results from SafetyNet’s first three years of work.
“It will provide a forum for feedback to SafetyNet
research teams about their research and their ‘community
alliance’ approach and it will contribute to the development
of new ideas and partnerships for future occupational health
and safety research,” said Dr. Neis.
