December 8, 2016 – What are the top barriers and issues affecting the health and safety of workplaces in Canada, and what can we do about them? The Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS) is inviting workers and employers to take part in an online survey that continues the conversation from CCOHS’ Forum 2016: The Changing World of Work”, held earlier this year in Vancouver, B.C.

The forum brought together subject experts, workers, employers and governments from across the country and beyond to explore the challenges arising from shifting demographics, climate change, mental health, workplace culture, emotional intelligence and more. Through workshop sessions, delegates weighed in on the barriers, issues, ideas, and good practices taking place in their workplaces.

Now CCOHS is inviting the public to take part in the survey and voice what they experience in their own workplaces.

The results will be consolidated into a report that shares and compares the feedback from the Forum, and will be available in early 2017, accoridng to CCOHS.

The survey closes December 30, 2016, and can be accessed from the CCOHS website HERE.
