Emile Tompa

Dr. Emile Tompa is a senior scientist at the internationally respected Institute for Work & Health and Co-Director of the Centre for Research on Work Disability Policy (CRWDP). His research focuses on identifying effective workplace strategies that improve the health and wellbeing of workers and the bottom line of employers. His expertise in this area was instrumental in the development of an important new standard for Canadian workplaces, CSA Z1011, Work Disability Management Systems, for which he chaired the technical committee. The standard will help workplaces reduce injury recurrences and absences due to disability, improve operational performance, increase worker productivity and engagement, and reduce workers' compensation costs.

Emile also teaches occupational health and safety at the University of Toronto's Centre for Industrial Relations and Human Resources and holds appointments as associate professor in the Department of Economics at McMaster University and assistant professor at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health at the University of Toronto.

Emile holds an M.B.A. from the University of British Columbia, an M.A. in economics from the University of Toronto, and a Ph.D. in economics from McMaster University.
