Health and Safety Series

HS - Workload and Overwork
Nov 2, 2019 (9:00am-12:00pm) (20 spaces available)

As employers pull back resources, they expect workers to do more with less. This module will examine workload, the cause and effects of overwork, and strategies to overcome the ever increasing workload that is damaging not just our health at work, but the relationship we have outside of work.

HS - Violence Prevention
Nov 2, 2019 (1:00pm-4:00pm) (20 spaces available)

This module examines the risk factors that lead to violence in the workplace, and the employer’s obligations to prevent workers from being exposed to and injured by violence while at work. We examine relevant health and safety law, and start to develop strategies to make our workplaces safer.

HS - Making Committees Work
Nov 3, 2019 (9:00am-12:00pm) (20 spaces available)

This module explores the structure, role and function of health and safety committees, their strengths and limitations, and how they can best work within the legislative framework, and within our union. This workshop should be taken before the HS Series Workshop: Recommendations and Notetaking.

In response to the health concerns of our members and staff, CUPE has implemented a Scent-Free Policy at all of our workshops. Scented products such as hair spray, perfume and deodorant can trigger reactions such as respiratory distress and headaches. Facilitators and participants are asked to refrain from using scented products while attending our workshops and meetings. Thank you for your cooperation.
