What in the World is a Healthy Workplace?Different parts of the world have interpreted the phrase "healthy workplace" very differently. The World Health Organization (WHO) wanted a global model for healthy workplaces that could be applied in any country, in any type of organization. They became aware of Canada's model (developed by Health Canada and adapted by NQI) and came to Joan Burton for assistance.

Joan will discuss this work and describe the new WHO Global Framework and Model for healthy workplaces, which is strongly built upon the Canadian model. If you work for a multinational company, this session is of critical importance for you. In fact, if you work for any company that wants to keep abreast of future trends in healthy workplaces, this is the session for you. Learn how you too can become involved in the WHO's work!
