BC Federation of Labour - ESL and Health and Safety at Work
The BC Federation of Labour is offering a 14 week program to educate participants about workplace health and safety using an ESL curriculum model.
Participants will have an opportunity to improve their language skills while learning about workers' rights in health and safety topics such as workplace violence, preventing back injuries, workplace chemicals (WHMIS) and identification of hazards.
In this unique program participants commit to attend a twice weekly, two-hour evening session for 14 weeks. There is no charge to participants.
Participants in these sessions will be able to use this knowledge and information to increase their awareness of health and safety and to become involved in the health and safety committees at their workplaces.
The initial class will begin on September11th as an orientation class, continuing with Tuesday & Thursday classes.
Please send registrations directly to the BC Federation of Labour. Registration forms and information are available in .pdf by clicking here.
