WorkSafeBC is pleased to issue a second Request for Proposals for INNOVATION AT WORK, in partnership with the Workers' Compensation Boards of Nova Scotia, Saskatchewan, and New Brunswick; the Workplace Health, Safety and Compensation Commission of Newfoundland and Labrador; and Alberta Employment and Immigration.
WorkSafeBC is dedicated to achieving a vision of workers and workplaces safe and secure from injury, illness and disease. To achieve this vision, WorkSafeBC, together with its partners, must encourage and support the development and use of the best scientific evidence on issues that workers, employers, and the organization itself face in seeking to prevent injury and illness, to return injured workers to health and to work, and to provide fair compensation.
To this end, WorkSafeBC offers research grants under its program FOCUS ON TOMORROW. Under its category INNOVATION AT WORK, grants are made available to a broader group of applicants (including workplace parties, unions, employer organizations, and educators). These grants are intended to support research for the development of new knowledge and/or practical problem-solving at the workplace level. Principal Applicants must be Canadian residents.
Notice of intent deadline: July 4, 2011.
Application deadline: August 8, 2011.
