About Forum IV

EXPLORE current issues, STIMULATE creative solutions, and INSPIRE workplace change...

Join hundreds of health & safety professionals from across the country at Forum IV - Better Together on October 29 & 30, 2012 in Halifax, Nova Scotia.


Let's make it happen.

Forum IV is a two-day tripartite, national event that will bring subject experts, workers, employers, and governments into one dynamic setting, to share their knowledge and experience around the growing concern for total worker well-being. Participants will take part in interactive workshops and benefit from presentations by leading workplace health and safety experts.

Forum IV is an opportunity for participants to collaborate on integrated, comprehensive approaches to total health and wellness at work. There is a connection between the mental, physical, and psychosocial aspects of both the work and non-work environments. Injuries, illnesses, high stress levels, chronic absenteeism, low morale and dissatisfaction all can have a devastating effect on workers, families, and organizations. Through the key discussion topics of mental health, psychosocial work factors and musculoskeletal disorders, harassment and bullying, and integrated workplace health and safety, participants will work together towards solutions for the total health of workers, in vibrant, engaged and balanced workplaces.

This will be CCOHS' fourth national forum. The most recent was held in Gatineau, QC, and brought together hundreds of participants from across Canada who shared their experiences while putting forth recommendations on how leadership can positively impact the health and safety of workers.
