Help make your workplace safe!

Fall 2006 OH&S Basic Steward Training

HSA is offering two 2-day basic OH&S steward workshops this fall:

Dates: November 6 and 7, 2006
November 27 and 28, 2006
Location: HSA office 300 - 5118 Joyce Street, Vancouver

Occupational health and safety issues are very important to HSA members. OH&S stewards have a vital role in promoting a safe work environment and helping to prevent injuries. These workshops will be participatory and discussion oriented. We encourage you to bring examples from your workplace for discussion. Please refer to the attached pre-registration form for further details.

Priority will be given to new HSA OH&S stewards and to OH&S stewards who have not previously attended HSA OH&S workshops. Workshop participants will discuss:

  • rights and responsibilities of safety stewards
  • role of the WCB
  • role of the new occupational health and safety regulations
  • accident investigation / prevention
  • workload/stress
  • violence in the workplace
  • musculoskeletal injuries

Deadlines for registration: October 9, 2006 (for Nov 6 & 7)
October 30, 2006 (for Nov 27 & 28)

Eligible stewards should print a pre-registration form off the HSA website (go to Member Services, then Education) and return it to the HSA Office (Attention:  Leila Lolua) as soon as possible.  HSA will call you to confirm your registration.
