Presented by the Work Wellness and Disability Prevention Institute and the On the Move Partnership. Across the world a wide range of people are mobile for work – women and men, citizens and temporary foreign workers, new workers and those near retirement. From hours-long daily commutes, to travel that takes workers away from home for days, weeks, months and even years; from mobility within work (truck driving, shipping and others) to mobility to get to and from work; from cars and buses, to trains, ships and planes; from highly-paid top executive jobs, to minimum-wage service jobs; from natural resource dependent industry to natural wonder dependent tourism – the types of mobility are many and changing. These webinars are to do with a wide range of people who are mobile for work – women and men, citizens and temporary foreign workers, as well as their families, health professionals, labour representatives and employers.
Three upcoming webinars:
• Workers’ Compensation Challenges for the Mobile Workforce: Policy and Practice in Canadian Jurisdictions (Katherine Lippel, Dana Howse and Barbara Neis).
• Temporary Foreign Workers: Health and Wellness (Dalia Gesualdi-Fecteau, Adam Perry and Barbara Neis).
