Canadian Agency Launches Online Safety Community
The Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS) has launched Workscape; an online discussion board where people interested in health and safety can exchange ideas and information to help make workplaces healthy and safe.
Free to join, Workscape was created primarily as a resource for the Canadian health and safety community; however anyone around the world with an interest in occupational health and safety can participate. Workscape members can share their experiences as well as post information, comments and questions on various topics including chemical safety, ergonomics, healthy workplaces, legislations and compliance, and training and education. Users can also find and post messages about job opportunities, seminars, and conferences. Workscape also features informal areas where members can introduce themselves and network with other health and safety professionals across the country.
CCOHS has a history of implementing technological tools to better serve Canadians. Workscape was established to offer a more interactive and dynamic platform for the sharing and exchange of workplace health and safety information among members of the workplace health and safety community.
