Reports on a study of women's experiences in small workplaces, the difficulties associated with working in small workplaces, and how work in small workplaces affects health and well-being. Through a set of focus groups and interviews, this research examined the experiences of women who work or have worked in small workplaces in Newfoundland. Sixty women living in St. John's, Clarenville, Gander, Corner Brook, and Stephenville participated in focus groups and interviews. This report attempts to fill the gap in knowledge of women's health and experiences in the workplace. Most occupational health studies focused on large, male-dominated workplaces, despite a dramatic growth in the small business sector and the fact that women are represented in large numbers in small workplaces. Policy recommendations to come out of the study include paying attention to the 'small workplace' regarding workplace safety, better communication between departments of public health, workplace health and safety and workers rights, keeping employees informed of their rights and responsibilities, providing employee/employer support, and labour/occupational health and safety standards.
