Today is the National Day of Rememberance and Action on Violence Against Women. As we mark the anniversary of the terrible École Polytechnique Massacre, also known as the Montreal Massacre, it’s important remember the ways your organization can continue to take action to keep people safe in the workplace. Every worker in Ontario has the right to feel safe when they go to work.
Workplace violence and harrassment can take many forms so it’s vital that employers understand the definitions, and their obligations under the Occupational Health and Safety Act. PSHSA offers a wide range of products and training to help our clients tackle violence in their health and safety procedures. You can access our free downloads on this topic or talk to your consultant about training.
