Conducting and Maintaining Hazard/Risk Assessments

Recorded: May 16, 2024

Hazard/risk assessments are a legal requirement that are often ignored, forgotten, or avoided.

Infection, Prevention and Control

Recorded: September 15, 2021

When SARS and H1N1 hit, many thought we'd seen the worst of it. But nothing could have prepared us for the COVID-19 pandemic last year. For those that weren't in healthcare or food services, the words "infection prevention" were probably rarely heard. The reality is, EVERYONE needs a good infection prevention and control program. Whether COVID-19 sticks around or disappears, there are always risks of infection in the workplace. One uncovered sneeze during flu season can set your workplace into a spiraling chain of absenteeism. What are the lessons we've learned and the take-aways needed? Let's prepare now so we don't get caught in the dark again.
Financial Well-Being

Racking, Stacking and Storage

Recorded: July 21, 2021

A lack of storage or a disorganized storage system is a common problem in many workplaces. Have you ever walked into a stock room or closet to see a mess of the shelves?

What can we do to fix this? Join this webinar and let's racking our brains and safely stacking our materials.
Breathing Well at Work

Recorded: June 16, 2021

This is a topic that covers many important areas, like health and safety and wellness. When people start to experience shortness of breath, they typically start to avoid all the activities that cause them discomfort, rather than asking the question WHY. Why aren't we breathing well? Is it something in the air at work, is it something medical like asthma, or could it even be stress? While avoiding activity might seem like the solution, does it actually make it worse? Take a deep breath...and let's get talking.
Identity Theft and Security

Recorded: May 19, 2021

The year is 2021….(cue the sci-fi movie music). Cars are not yet flying, but information is flying faster than the speed of light. But let's get serious. We're in a time where information changes so rapidly that it is becoming hard to stay up to date. Scammers and hackers are getting more and more creative in finding ways to steal our personal information. How do we protect our identity? Is what we innocently share on the internet harmful? What do we do as business owners, employers, and everyday people to protect our security?
Effective Orientation Programs

Recorded: April 21, 2021

How to Discipline Effectively

Recorded: January 20, 2021

Discipline should not simply be “writing up” an employee when an infraction has been made. The purpose of discipline is to correct behaviour, not to punish or embarrass. Communication, coaching and mentoring may resolve issues without having to discipline employees, but if unacceptable behaviour is a persistent problem or if the employee is involved in misconduct that cannot be tolerated, discipline should be used to help correct the problem.

Join us as we discuss how to start this culture change in our workplaces.

Demonstrating Competency in OHS

Recorded: July 22, 2020

The courts, our clients, legislation and our workplaces require that we have persons competent in health and safety, but what does that mean in practical, everyday operations?
