• Occupational social work: From social control to social assistance?

      Csiernik, Rick (Canadian Association of Social Workers, 1996-09-12)
      The worksite is an important setting which impacts on the social, mental and physical well-being of the worker. A healthy workplace environment can induce many positive changes such as, a healthier workforce, increased morale, reduced absenteeism and, in turn, increased productivity. Conversely, an unhealthy and hazardous workplace can increase mortality and morbidity, lower the worker's quality of life, escalate health care costs.
