Establishing an Effective Joint Health & Safety Committee

OSSA's Health & Safety Awareness workshops are designed to provide employers, supervisors, HR professionals, health & safety representatives and JHSC members with the information and skills needed to uphold your legal obligations under the Act and create an effective health & safety program in the workplace. These modules are designed to support our Workwell Program or they can be delivered as awareness seminars to larger audiences.

Each workshop is approximately 2 hours in length and provides an engaging combination of activities, such as lecture, large group discussion, case study analysis and action planning in both a small group format and through individual exercises.

Customized workshops on additional topics are available upon request.
