UFCW Canada's ground-breaking online education program, webCampus, has launched two new health and safety courses that can help you address hazards in your workplace and ensure that you have proper ventilation and good air quality at work.
The free online courses are being offered in English and are available to all UFCW Canada members and their family members, as well as our community partners.
The new courses are described as follows:
Health & Safety: Level 2 Committees – Part 1
Do you want to make a difference in your workplace? Being part of the joint health and safety committee means you have the right to obtain information, identify hazards, investigate accidents and work refusals, and make recommendations. Health and safety committees are much more effective when workers participate in the process, and this course can help you learn more about how they work.
Indoor Air Quality & Ventilation
Workers in sealed buildings can be exposed to a wide array of health and safety hazards. This course explores the different types of hazards, the exchange of air, and what workers themselves bring to the equation. You will learn cause and effect and how to control hazards, in addition to viable solutions to common indoor air quality and ventilation problems.
Registration for both courses, as well as other health and safety courses, is now open. To register for these free online courses, and to find more out more about the webCampus program, visit the webCampus website.
