2005 OH&S Steward Training


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

Workshop 1: January 31st and February 1st, 2005
Workshop 2:
February 28th and March 1st, 2005

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 urge you to bring examples from your workplace for discussion. The workshops will be held at the HSA office, 300 - 5118 Joyce Street, Vancouver. Please refer to the attached Steward Training Workshop Information Sheet (see below) 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
  • new occupational health and safety regulations
  • accident investigation / prevention
  • workload/stress
  • violence in the workplace
  • musculoskeletal injuries
