Healthcare workers are one of the highest risk groups for work-related injuries and illness in Ontario and across Canada. There is a strong correlation between worker health and safety and patient safety; healthy workers are more productive, better focused, and less prone to errors.

 

PSHSA recognizes Canadian Patient Safety Week (October 31-November 4), an annual campaign organized by the Canadian Patient Safety Institute to create awareness and improvement in patient safety and quality.
