Safety and Health Week runs until May 9 and the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS), along with organizations across North America, are marking it with virtual activities and events due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
CCOHS is providing helpful tips and tools for employees to reinforce good practices and the importance of having both physically and psychologically safe work environments.
The following are suggestions for workplaces to commemorate the week and promote safety in their workplaces:
- Listen to podcasts from a collection of topics ranging from work-related stress, ergonomics, repetitive strain injury prevention and mental health.
- Take CCOHS’ free online courses on mental health themes such as how to have courageous conversations, build resiliency and promote well-being, as well as courses on office ergonomics and pandemic planning.
- Promote important health and safety messages by downloading Safety and Health Week branded posters and shareable social media cards.
