CPHR CPD Hours: 3.0
Safety can be a serious and sometimes complicated subject. This interactive session will outline the basics of Safety, including why it is important to organizations and why it is also individually important to the people that work in those organizations. This session will discuss developing and implementing an organizational safety policy, developing a safety program, creating and supporting active safety committees, managing safety training requirements and required inspections. This session will also include a review of the related Occupational Health and Safety legislation including the Nova Scotia Occupational Health and Safety Act and it’s regulations in an easy-to-understand way. Participants will discuss the reasons why safety concerns are sometimes overlooked and potential solutions discussed. Practical examples and templates will be provided for use. Legal topics such as employee and employer rights and responsibilities will be discussed as well as what is really meant by the concept of due diligence.
