Registration is now open for HSA’s Biennial OHS Stewards Conference to be held at the union’s office in New Westminster on June 8-9, 2020.

Topics include:

  • Adapting the psychological health and safety standard
  • Resiliency
  • Racism, equity and the impacts on health and safety
  • Refusing unsafe work
  • Opioid crisis
  • Bullying and harassment
  • Cannabis in the workplace, and
  • Advanced OHS steward training

The conference will be an important opportunity for advanced learning and networking opportunities for front-line HSA Occupational Health and Safety stewards supporting their colleagues at work as well as HSA representatives on workplace joint health and safety committees required by legislation at all worksites.
