Canadians' Input Sought on Health, Safety Issues of Changing Workplaces

The Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS) is inviting Canadians to take a Web survey and weigh in on the issues emerging from changing workplaces.

The workplace and the workforce are changing. The workforce is aging and now includes more women and more ethnically diverse workers. Today's workplace includes more contracting, self-employment, part-time or temporary positions, and more workers who have multiple jobs. These changes present gaps in worker protection, highlight technological challenges, and raise the question of who is accountable and responsible for health and safety in the workplace.

In September 2007 CCOHS hosted a national tripartite forum in Vancouver, with leading experts and 200 representatives from employers, labor and government, that focused on these very issues. During workshop sessions, delegates discussed these issues in greater detail, highlighting their own experiences with precarious workplaces, identifying key concerns, and outlining possible solutions and strategies.

And now CCOHS is inviting Canadians to help continue the dialogue by taking the survey on changing workplaces and providing feedback on this critical, rapidly developing area of workplace health and safety.

CCOHS will share the survey results and highlights from Forum07, with all Canadians this spring.
