Health & Community Services
Headed by Sherri Bastos and a team of regional health & community care experts, Sherri and her team serve this sector to address a number of challenges. These challenges are due, in part, to increasing client care demands, including: the aging population, increased client acuity in Community and Long-Term Care, increased obesity rates and increased prevalence of dementia-related illnesses.

Education & Culture
Educational environments encourage curiosity and discovery, but they must also be a place of safety. These workplaces are prone to hazards related to violence, exposure to chemicals or biological hazards, and more. Occupations such as cleaners, teaching assistants, food service employees and maintenance workers are faced with these hazards everyday while on the job.
PSHSA’s Public Safety unit has been serving Ontario for decades. With experienced instructors and proven training courses, we have made great strides in reducing and preventing occupational injuries and illnesses in the province’s Fire, Police and Paramedic Services by providing the Emergency Services sector with health and safety training services.
