Product Description

As of December 2009, the Ontario Legislature passed amendments to the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA) to help protect workers against workplace violence and harassment. The legislation will come into effect June 15, 2010. Note: Many other Canadian jurisdictions already have violence prevention legislation.

Join Webinar presenter Jessie Callaghan as she explores the ideas, implications and applications regarding this Ontario Bill and how your workplace policies and procedures will be affected—helping you construct a roadmap to violence and harassment prevention so that you can apply it to your work environment.

Jessie Callaghan is a Senior Technical Specialist with CCOHS, where she has been employed as a scientist, researcher and writer for over 20 years. She is CCOHS' resident expert on workplace violence and its prevention.

This webinar was produced to create and increase awareness of this important subject during North American Occupational Safety and Health Week 2010.
