Featured Topic: Violence and Harassment

Employers have a role to play in promoting self-care of their employees and to prevent mental or psychological harm.

Violence and Harassment

What can employers do to protect their workers from becoming victims of workplace violence? The primary goal is to prevent these types of incidents by minimizing the risks. A secondary goal is to make sure your company and workforce are prepared for violence so you can minimize casualties and respond quickly in the event of a violent incident.

What are CCSA Safety Segments?

We understand that you value safety but sometimes it’s challenging to find the right resources. We know it’s not easy to find time to plan effective discussions with staff to support their right to know and their right to participate meaningfully. The CCSA has identified that gap so we have created the “Safety Segments”.

Think of it as a short safety talk or discussion… The “Segments” provides educators, leaders, OH&S committee members, and other designated staff with quick and effective sources of information that can be used as group activities or huddles in 10-15 minutes or less. The purpose is to empower the staff to help create safer, healthier workplaces.  

A topic will be featured each month. It is structured so each week you will have a different type of resource to look at with instructions or suggestions of how to do the activity, as well as guiding questions for those that will facilitate the segment discussions. Week 3 will be focused on mental health and wellness and an alternate resource will be available as an option. You can choose any topic for any week, whatever works for your team!
