In today's hyper connected world there is an almost unlimited volume of information available at our fingertips. The problem is that we do not always know what information we can trust. This issue is especially relevant to workplace safety. For workplaces to take action and implement change they must have resources that they can count on.
For more than 30 years, CCOHS has been offering a free person-to-person Inquiries Service that provides Canadians with the information that they need to work safely. The service is easy to access for workers and employers, with confidential, reliable service offered in both English and French, both online and by calling our toll-free phone number.
If you call us, you will be connected directly with a professional who will learn about and document your specific issue or concern and conduct research, including consultation with CCOHS experts and resources. You'll receive a customized, unbiased response with the best available information, knowledge, and best practices acquired from evaluated, reliable sources and translated by our specialists to meet your specific needs.
We are able to assist with a wide diversity of issues. In 2014 some of the most assisted topics covered bullying and harassment, hazardous materials, ergonomics, legal requirements, best practices, human rights, workplace wellness and WHMIS after GHS.
In addition, easy-to-read fact sheets on hundreds of health and safety questions is available online for free through our OSH Answers service. Serve yourself, or contact us - either way, we're here to help.
