CCOHS workplace survey seeks insights to inspire positive changes in safety

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 sparked at CCOHS’ Forum 2016: The Changing World of Work, held earlier this year in Vancouver, British Columbia.

CCOHS’ Forum 2016 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. They highlighted their own experiences, identifying concerns and outlining possible solutions and strategies related to the health and safety of workplaces in Canada.

Now CCOHS is inviting the public to take part in the survey and add their voices and perspectives on what they experience in their own workplaces. The results of the survey will be consolidated into a report that shares and compares the feedback from the Forum, and will be available in early 2017. It is hoped that the insights shared in the report will inspire positive change in the workplace.

The survey will remain open until December 30, 2016 and can be accessed from the CCOHS website: www.ccohs.ca/events/forum16/#outcomes.

Forum 2016: The Changing World of Work, was hosted by CCOHS on February 29 and March 1, 2016, in Vancouver, British Columbia. The Forum had tripartite (government, labour and employers) delegate representation from across Canada. Current and emerging workplace issues were explored at the event including new ideas and ways of thinking, to stimulate creative solutions.
