Network Member: Occupational Health Clinics for Ontario Workers (OHCOW)

Who we are and what we do

Our aim is to protect workers and their communities from occupational disease, injuries and illnesses. We strive to address occupational hazards, to promote the social, mental and physical well-being of workers and their families.

Our goal is the accomplish this by identifying workplace factors that damage the health and welfare of all workers. This is through the distribution of occupational health, hygiene, and ergonomic information to increase knowledge among workers, employers and the general public. 

Ergonomics

Ergonomics can be defined as fitting the job to the worker. Not all workers are the same size and everyone has limits. Ergonomics aims to design workstations, work processes, equipment, and tools to fit you. As a worker, it is important that you know how to adjust your workstation to suit your needs. Our services offer ergonomic resources in the form of appsergonomic assessment tools as well as a vast library of information available on our website. We also offer to send one of our highly skilled ergonomists to your workplace for an onsite assessment. For more information please contact ask@ohcow.on.ca

Occupational Hygienists

Our Hygienists look at the chemical,  biological (i.e. mould) and physical (i.e. noise) hazards that can lead to the development of diseases and develop strategies to reduce these hazards including engineering and administrative controls such as ventilation or noise control measures.

Occupational Health Nurse

OHCOW Nurses can help the workplace with the introduction of medical surveillance programs, lifestyle/wellness programs, and conducting hearing screening. The staff work together using an inter-disciplinary team approach to health and safety concerns.  By accomplishing this, OHCOW has been able to address the needs of workplaces in our catchment area.
