Participants will select from a range of workshops addressing the leading causes of work-related injury, illness and death, including occupational disease, musculoskeletal disorders and violence and harassment.
Each workshop is designed as a platform for furthering awareness and inspiring activism. Participants will be encouraged to share their experiences of suffering, challenges in promoting safer and healthier work, prevention achievements and the strategies they used to attain success. Thus, knowing prevention solutions can be achieved, participants will be challenged to return to their communities and work for safer and healthier workplaces.
Health and safety programs used during conference workshops are developed by the Workers Health & Safety Centre (WHSC). Workers’ compensation-related workshop programs are developed by the Ontario Federation of Labour Occupational Disability Response Team (OFL‑ODRT).
