Health & Safety for Federal Workers


CAW members who work in navigation and shipping, on railways and canals, in telecommunications and inter-provincial road transportation, on ferry services, in airlines, aircraft repair, banks, at ports, and other "federal works" come under the Canada Labour Code.  This new Health and Safety program focuses specifically on health and safety provisions known as Part II of the code.  Participants see how to effectively use the Internal Complaint Resolution Process and the Right to Refuse to identify and eliminate hazards and try out such tools as body mapping, workplace mapping, analyzing committee minutes, job safety analysis, making a workplace inspection plan.  The course also looks at how to use CAW contract language.
