Toronto Clinic

Central Region

The Toronto OHCOW Clinic was established in 1989, dedicating itself to the identification and prevention of work-related injuries and illnesses. The clinic was created as a resource for workers and employers as part of the growing need for accessible expert information and technical studies relating to occupational health issues in the workplace.

Our clinic provides workers with access to our interdisciplinary team which will investigate and provide an opinion regarding whether or not a health problem is work-related. The team includes the services of occupational physicians, an occupational nurse, ergonomists, industrial hygienists and client service coordinators.

These services are also offered to workplace parties, often through their Joint Health & Safety Committees, with recommendations to reduce or eliminate exposures in the workplace.

OHCOW services are funded by the Prevention Office of the Ministry of Labour and are provided at no cost to patients and workplaces within Ontario.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or would like more information.
