CUPE has developed new training courses that promote health and safety activism and give health and safety representatives the tools they need to confront employers and governments. The courses will help CUPE local representatives become advocates for taking back control of joint health and safety committees.

CUPE will:

  • Encourage locals to reject employer-controlled health and safety training.
  • Develop a plan and campaign to ensure that each CUPE member sitting on a joint health and safety committee is provided with CUPE-developed and CUPE-delivered training.
  • Fight for governments and employers to recognize CUPE health and safety training.
  • Integrate emerging issues like stress, harassment, discrimination and violence in the workplace into health and safety training material.
