Every worker deserves a safe and healthy workplace.
Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) is all about keeping workers safe and healthy at work. Every single worker has a right to a safe and healthy working environment - no matter what.
Sometimes, OHS can be hard to understand. When your boss asks you to do something unsafe at work, it can be hard to say 'no' especially if you don't know what your rights are.
That's why we're holding an OHS Fundamentals Seminar. Featuring expert guest speakers, this event is designed to empower workers to save lives by teaching the fundamentals of OHS.
- What is OHS and why it's important
- What your OHS rights are
- Employers' OHS duties
- The importance of workers' voices in OHS
- How to collectively create a safer workplace
Nibbles and drinks will be provided.
This seminar is the first event of VTHC's OHS Basics Month.
If you can't make it, this event will be streamed live on our We Are Union: OHS Reps Facebook page.
