January 25 - 26, 2020
These series of workshops are designed to provide health and safety basics and develop core skills, support participants to think about the different ways health and safety connects to human rights in our union and our community, and to deal with specific workplace hazards and methods for removing them from the workplace.
HS - Equality in Health and Safety
Jan 25, 2020 (9:00am-12:00pm) (8 spaces available)
Championing equality in the workplace and the union is a vital role of health and safety activists. But what does it really mean to act as a good ally? In this workshop, we will explore what oppression looks like in a health and safety context, and look at ways to reduce personal bias, challenge oppression, and act in solidarity with members from marginalized and equity-seeking groups.
