Part 2: Ontario’s Cost Calculator and Related Resources

Part 3: Measuring Workplace Stress Among RSI Day Participants – 6 years later

In 2018, RSI Day participants were introduced to StressAssess, a tool for measuring psychosocial conditions in a workplace, completing and reviewing the results of the survey live during the session. We thought it would be interesting to repeat the survey 6 years later to see if anything has changed.  Please fill out the survey here  and attend for a real-time update, and in the process we’ll refresh your memory regarding the usefulness of StressAssess as a workplace mental health and injury prevention tool in workplaces large and small.
