Women's Health and Safety in the Workplace (NEW!)
This course is open to all genders
All workers face health and safety issues at work but many of these issues affect women in particular ways. This course provides participants with the opportunity to develop their ability to identify, assess and control workplace hazards from a woman’s perspective. Please ensure that you are a union appointed committee member, and that you have taken the prerequisite Basic Committee Training course prior to registering for this course.

In this course, you will learn:

  • How women’s physical and psychological health is affected by toxic workplace substances, work design, and work organization.
  • Workplace stressors such as inequity, domestic and gender based violence, sexual harassment, shiftwork.
  • Human rights legislation which requires the employer to address workplace hazards that predominately affect women.
  • Learn how pregnancy and menopause can impact women's safety at work.

This course is limited to 24 seats so register early to avoid disappointment.

The BCGEU invites and encourages employer representatives to attend BCGEU OHS training courses. Please share this registration link with your employer and co-committee members.

Don't miss out on this opportunity to improve your ability to advocate for workers' health and safety rights - register today!
