This workshop covers three modules:
-Making Committees Work
-Identifying and Documenting Hazards
-Equality in Health & Safety

HS - Making Committees Work
May 1, 2020 (6:00pm-9:00pm)

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.

HS - Identifying and Documenting Hazards
May 2, 2020 (9:00am-12:00pm)

In this module, you will learn techniques for identifying hazards, such as body maps, surveys and inspections. You will also develop a methodology for dealing with the hazards you find.

HS - Equality in Health and Safety
May 2, 2020 (1:00pm-4:00pm)

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.

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.
