Are you interested in creating safe, healthy, inclusive, and productive workplaces?  When you become a member, you support our mission to eliminate job loss and worklessness for people with, or at risk of, chronic or episodic health conditions.  

Membership brings together dedicated individuals and organizations interested in the utilization of current research to create and sustain effective, successful, and supportive work environments for all workers.  Professional members receive free certificates of attendance for our research to practice webinars.  

Your support and participation in our organization is greatly appreciated and will help us:

  • Facilitate the adoption of research evidence to create and sustain work wellness, eliminate impairment-caused job loss, and prevent worklessness
  • Provide credible, science-informed, practical tools and educational resources to facilitate stay at work, return to work, and re-integration of people with impairments and disabilities
  • Work collaboratively with government, organizations, and individuals who play a role in creating, and sustaining safe, healthy, inclusive and productive workplaces
  • Provide relevant and useful evidence-based services and resources to stakeholders seeking research-based information and practical resources. Stakeholders include:
    • governments, employers, labour organizations, occupational health and safety professionals, public and private insurers, educators, and workers
  • Partner with the global community of researchers, professionals, and other stakeholders committed to the prevention of job loss and worklessness
  • Support work participation for those at risk, or with, chronic and episodic health-related challenges (e.g. muscle and joint disorders, chronic pain, mental health, respiratory, cardiovascular, diabetes, etc.)
