The World Day for Safety and Health at Work, Tuesday, April 28, 2020, aims to stimulate dialogue between governments, employers, workers and their organizations on safety and health at work. Marking the launch of our Five Questions series, we spoke with Dr. Kelly Williams-Whitt, associate dean of the Dhillon School of Business and a Labour Arbitrator, to discuss Psychosocial Hazards and the Well-being of Employers and Employees.
Professor Williams-Whitt is a former registered nurse, with an MBA in entrepreneurship and a PhD in human resource management and labour relations. She is an active researcher with expertise in occupational health and return-to-work after illness or injury. She sits on the editorial board of the Journal of Occupational Rehabilitation, and is a member of the Board of Directors of the Workplace Wellness Institute, an organization dedicated to leading science-based change through collaboration with partners in academia, industry, government and the community.
