OH&S Workshops

Two-day Intro OH&S Workshops (online format)

As you may be aware, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, HEU moved some of our key education sessions to an online format. 

We are scheduling Introductory Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) workshops for members and alternates representing HEU on Joint Occupational Health and Safety (JOHS) Committees.

Participants will have the opportunity to:

  • discuss their experiences and to examine patterns of OH&S concerns;
  • understand the Workers’ Compensation Act and OH&S Regulation requirements;
  • understand the structure, roles and functions of the JOHS Committee; and
  • learn how to take action, including by applying the Act and Regulation to resolve OH&S concerns.
