Health and Safety Caucus
We are pleased to announce the details of this year's Health and Safety Caucus to be held via digital medium (ZOOM) in October 2020. The theme of the workshop is Workplace Violence:Take Action.

In this session members will learn how to move an unresolved violence issue through the Joint Health and Safety Committee and reporting to the Ministry of Labour. Members will develop critical thinking skills building on their existing knowledge of workplace violence by examining and analyzing the issue, identifying barriers, and developing strategies to address barriers, determining their best course of action, and implementing best practices. Throughout the session learnings will be linked to resources and tools, legislation and coaching assistance focusing on addressing gaps in flagging, training and security/personal safety devices, available to assist them in achieving resolution to issues identified in their workplace by holding the employer accountable to take action on workplace violence and prevention. The learning points will be achieved utilizing the expert panel, case studies, small group work and networking.

Learning Points:

1. Building awareness of current successes in Health and Safety incorporating best practices in gathering evidence, available tools/resources, and legislation to support the communication/presentation when making a case for flagging, training, and personal safety devices/security.

2. Identifying barriers and using critical thinking skills in developing strategies for escalation unresolved safety issues and closing gaps related to flagging, training, and personal safety devices/security.
