Identifying workplace hazards.
Recommending measures to eliminate workplace exposures.
Lobbying governments to enforce, enact or amend health and safety legislation.
Educating workers about occupational health and safety. .
These are just some of the activities performed by volunteer health and safety activists. Without their dedication and persistence the depth of worker suffering would know no boundary. Their efforts give us hope that one day we can truly achieve hazard-free workplaces - where all workers return home each day safe and healthy to their family.
The Workers Health & Safety Centre and many others believe these selfless contributions are well worth celebrating. Each fall, in conjunction with local Ontario labour councils, the Workers Health & Safety Centre embarks on a province-wide campaign recognizing volunteer health and safety activists.
