IRSST IS WATCHING FOR YOU
OHS scientific watch in blog form
The Institut de recherche Robert-Sauvé en santé et en sécurité du travail (IRSST) is making accessible, in blog form, the scientific information documented by its Strategic Watch Department. This scientific information comes from the daily monitoring of more than 650 Web pages dealing with occupational health and safety (OHS) and the information collected by its personnel during discussions, workshops, forums, colloquia, conferences or any other event addressing the major issues of OHS research.

The IRSST and the Réseau provincial de recherche en adaptation-réadaptation of the Fonds de la recherche en santé du Québec (REPAR/FRSQ) have just entered into a partnership agreement. Through this agreement, the parties will jointly finance the production of knowledge reviews. As a first initiative, the IRSST and REPAR/FRSQ are inviting researchers interested in participating in a call for proposals on osteoarthrosis of the knee.
