The philosophy of the EPID@Work Research Institute is to improve work-related injury and disability prevention through understanding the mechanisms of the problem, beyond a medical approach.

We conduct participatory research that addresses the personal, legal and insurance system, workplace and environmental, medical and health care system, within an overall societal context. 

Our aim is to bring together community and academic professionals to conduct research that is meaningful to all involved. Therefore, we seek to build partnerships with community stakeholders to ensure our research is relevant and timely.
