A safe and healthy workplace is a basic worker right. This course will re-empower members to ensure we have secure workplaces. Participants will start with their own knowledge of their work, and workplaces, and will critically examine the risks and responsibilities of workers and employers, including the notion of ‘worker carelessness’. Participants will develop action plans to mobilize members and to ensure the employer provides the necessary tools, training and funding to support a healthy and safe workplace.

Please apply for this course below. The application deadline is December 22, 2023.
