Students Make Health and Safety Recommendations for the Humber Valley Terrace Long Term Care Home

Students Make Health and Safety Recommendations for the Humber Valley Terrace Long Term Care Home

Thu, April 11, 2019

Ensuring good physical and psychological health and safety (PH&S) in the workplace is vitally important for all Canadians.

Through an interdisciplinary approach between the Business School and School of Health Sciences, Dr. Suzy Casimiro and her students were invited to visit, investigate and advance the physical and psychological health and safety (PH&S) at Humber Valley Terrace Long Term Care Home, Etobicoke.

Under the supervision of the Executive Director at Humber Valley Terrace, Marjorie Mossman, students identified the physical hazards and explored possible psychosocial hazards of workers within this healthcare setting. By also adopting sections of the new and – the first of its kind in the world, Canadian Standard for Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace (CSA-Z1003-13), students explored the many ways that jobs can affect health and safety, from potential exposures to physical hazards, to work-related mental health concerns within healthcare settings.

As a result, students were able to make recommendations on how to improve the policies, procedures and offer health & wellness program options. Overall, recommendations focused on improving the physical and organizational environment to lessen risks of injury and illness; from integrated protection from work-related safety and health hazards to the promotion of injury and illness prevention and the introduction of wellness programs- all to advance both workers’ well-being and the organization.
