What Makes a Project Safe? Identifying the Impacts Factors Have on the Safety Performance of a Construction Site through Use of Artificial Neural NetworksDownload
What makes a construction project safe? This question prompted this research project. The goal was to identify factors and quantify their impact on the safety performance of construction projects. The first step in achieving this goal was to research key performance indicators in the area of...
Construction sites are the place where personnel and equipment work closely. In such workplaces, human movement dynamically adapts to the surrounding circumstances which are congested and continually changing. Acquisition of worker trajectories and measurement of physical value of workplaces,...
The Detection and Causality Assessment of Adverse Events Related to Natural Health Product Use in Community Pharmacies through the Implementation of Active Surveillance.Download
Background: Natural health products (NHP) are widely used by the public. Since NHPs are pharmacologically active products, their ability to cause adverse reactions (AR) is present and well-documented. Currently employed passive surveillance systems are not well-equipped to detect NHP adverse...
Background: Current vertebroplasty practices significantly vary due to differences in perceived effectiveness and safety of this interventional approach. Objectives: To assess the efficacy and safety of Percutaneous Vertebroplasty in relieving pain due to osteoporotic vertebral compression...
The objective of this thesis study is to identify factors that influence Alberta food processors' food safety decisions. Data for this study were collected in a 2008 survey of Alberta food processors. It is hypothesized that pressures from government, industry, and consumers influence...
Adolescents’ safety on the Internet is a prime concern in society. Sexual predators use the online environment regularly to solicit adolescents for sexual purposes; however, we know very little about the experiences of adolescents who become victimized in this way. This research used a thematic...
A Retrospective Analysis of the Safety and Efficacy of a 6-Week Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program in Patients with Severe Pulmonary Arterial HypertensionDownload
Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH) is progressive disease characterized by reduced exercise capacity and decreased quality of life. Despite the availability of disease targeted therapies outcomes remain sub-optimal. Pulmonary Rehabilitation has proven to improve outcomes in other chronic...
