Eastern Ontario worker educational promotes prevention and just compensation

Eastern Ontario worker educational promotes prevention and just compensation
Workers and their representatives are invited to register for a labour-sponsored health, safety and workers compensation school this March. 
Now in its 25 year, this biannual training opportunity continues to empower and motivate workers and their representatives in the pursuit of safer and healthier workplaces. The educational also offers training for worker compensation activists.    
What:     Eastern Ontario Labour Council Health & Safety/WSIB Spring Educational
When:    Wednesday, March 25, 2015 (evening) through Sunday, March 29, 2015
Where:   Picton, Ontario—Isaiah Tubbs Resort & Conference Centre
Who:       Workers and their representatives
Training materials used for this school are developed by the Workers Health & Safety Centre (WHSC) and the Ontario Federation of Labour Occupational Disease Response Team (OFL-ODRT).
Built upon a hazard-based approach and proven delivery model, WHSC training programs encourage workplace efforts to identify, assess and control, or better yet eliminate, hazardous working conditions that give rise to work-related injury, illness and death. This approach runs counter to behaviour-based safety (BBS) programs aimed at suppressing the reporting of work-related injury and illness all the while leaving hazards unchecked (see link below).
Organizers of this training opportunity encourage participants to register now as classes fill quickly.
Participants must select to participate in one of the following programs:
  • WHSC Level 1 Basic Occupational Health & Safety Awareness
  • WHSC Level II Committees (Provincial)
  • WHSC Confronting Bullying, Harassment, Mental Distress and Violence in the Workplace (composite program)
  • OFL-ODRT WSIB Program Level 1 & 2
  • OFL-ODRT Medical Orientation
  • OFL-ODRT Return to Work
