The Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS) has asked workers and employers alike to respond to an online survey that builds on the conversation opened at CCOHS’ Forum 2016: The Changing World of Work, which was held in Vancouver, BC earlier this year.
This year's CCOHS’ Forum saw subject experts, workers, employers and governments convene to explore new challenges arising from:
- shifting demographics
- climate change
- mental health
- workplace culture and
- emotional intelligence
With specially designed workshops, delegates discussed barriers, issues, ideas, and good practices taking place in their own workplaces, highlighting personal experiences and concerns and outlining possible solutions and strategies relating to health and safety in Canadian workplaces.
The CCOHS is now seeking to build on these foundations by asking the public to respond to its survey and in doing so, adding their own perspectives and experience in the wider working environment with the ultimate aim of inspiring positive change in the workplace.
The results of the survey will be available in early 2017.
It's not too late to have your say on the top barriers and issues affecting the health and safety of Canadian workplaces and what can be done about them. The survey is open until the end of December 2016 and is available on the CCOHS website: www.ccohs.ca/events/forum16/#outcomes.
