A day of occupational health and safety training is on the way for Moose Jaw, and it will teach those who attend skills they can use to protect both themselves and their fellow employees.

The Level One Occupational Health Committee training will provide an introduction to the subject for occupational health and safety reps and members. It will cover a range of topics, including how to locate and use information in the province’s legislation that is relevant to their particular situation, how to establish and maintain an effective occupational health committee, what role this committee can play in employee safety and much more. They will also learn how to identify and then assess hazards in their workplace, how to suggest corrective actions and also what steps to take when investigating a situation where there has been an expression of concern or refusal to work due to employee safety issues.

The organizers noted that those who register to participate in the workshop would be expected to attend the entire course. A local printer can craft certificates of completion and other business forms for use during and event such as this.

The two day long workshop will begin on November 21st, and it will finish on November 22nd. It will be held in Mosaic Place in Moose Jaw, and there is no fee being charged to register.
