May 4, 2018 – Keeping Up To Date on CSA Standards

Spring into Action and check out these new OHS Standards!

New OHS standards in the “suite of standards” under CSA Z1000:Incident Investigation (CSA Z1005) and Emergency and Continuity Management (CSA Z1600).

Presented by Corporate Health Works, Norma McCormick:President

What is being presented?

There are two new CSA OHS standards which will be of interest to IPAM members. The first edition of CSA Z1005 – 17 Incident Investigation, which sets out prevention principles and requirements to determine causes and to prevent work-related incidents.

The second standard is the third edition of CSA Z1600, Emergency and continuity management program.

Why should you attend?

  1. Broad acceptance and implementation of CSA’s OHS standards leads to the effective identification and elimination of workplace hazards, the assessment and control of risks, improved regulatory compliance and demonstration of due diligence.
  2. Continual improvement of OHS programs and procedures leading to reductions in the frequency and severity of incidents and the associated financial and human costs.
  3. CSA Z1000 and the suite of health and safety standards represent a unique and valuable approach to managing various aspects of a comprehensive program, necessary to meet the regulatory requirements.

A bit about our presenter:

Norma McCormick is a member of several CSA Technical Committees including Occupational Health and Safety Management System standard (CSA Z1000-14), and CSA Z1600 – 17 Emergency and Continuity Management Programs. Norma received CSA’s Award of Merit in June 2006. She was elected by CSA members to the CSA Group Board in June 2013.

April 13, 2018 Don’t miss it: Innovations in Prescription Safety Eyewear

Join us with Christine Neustaeter, Licensed Optician from Eye GO Mobile Optical

Website Eye Go  and facebook

Learn what is available in exciting new safety frames and lens technology, and have an opportunity to try some on (there will be an assortment for demonstration).

What you will learn.                                                                                                                                                                                                                           The focus will mainly be on the progressions and innovations made in safety eyewear (both frame and lenses). Safety eyewear was at one time kept unfashionable on purpose, so that it didn’t compete with other frames. There has been a huge evolution in the last 10 years and many people are probably not fully aware of what is now available. There will be a draw for a free pair of prescription eyeglasses for those in attendance, and a couple of runner up gift cards for 2nd and 3rd place winners!

About Christine and her business

I have worked in the optical industry since 1999. I have experience in many different store environments, from expensive doctor’s offices to Walmart vision. Having seen many changes in this industry especially with the surge of online prescription eyeglasses, I sourced out my own inexpensive products and eventually in 2014 Eye GO Mobile Optical was born. We offer internet pricing plus professional service, and mobile services including safety eyewear to workplaces, and visits for people in care homes & hospitals.

Who should come? Everyone!

Committee members, safety professionals, anyone who has ruined their glasses by playing sports, painting, welding, weed trimming, etc. Business owners/managers who need to provide safety eyewear to their staff.

Balancing Safety with Other Legal Obligations in Today’s Workplace

You don’t want to miss this! Listen to practical advice on important safety issue management.

In order to maintain a safe workplace and show due diligence, sometimes employees may need to be disciplined when they break safety rules.  When should that discipline for a safety infraction mean termination of employment?  What happens if an employer gets it wrong and terminates when they shouldn’t? What happens when there are human rights issues raised as the reason a safety rule can’t be followed? This session will provide practical advice on when to discipline, when to terminate, and how to do so in such a way as to limit liability for wrongful terminations, all while balancing human rights obligations.

What knowledge will I gain?

  • When and how to apply the principles of progressive discipline
  • How to recognize human rights issues and how to balance human rights with safety
  • How to discipline employees and terminate employees legally

Who should attend?
Occupational Health and Safety Professionals, Human Resource Professionals, Disability Management Professionals, Senior and General Managers, Supervisors

Join your IPAM colleagues on Friday, November 3, 2017 for an interesting session as outlined below:

SAFE Work Certified with YOU!

Your actions or inactions have a profound impact on workplace safety, productivity and cost.  Why not walk the talk, set a positive example to motivate others, and join hundreds of other Manitoba workplaces in their efforts to make our province the safest place to live and work?

Attend this presentation and learn the steps involved in achieving and maintaining certification! The SAFE Work Certified Program is currently being delivered through a network of industry based safety programs/associations designated as Certifying Partners.  Certifying Partners provide the necessary information, support and training to assist employers in obtaining certification. Beginning in 2018, employers who meet eligibility requirements will qualify for a prevention rebate based on their WCB assessment premium.

The SAFE Work Certified Program utilizes a unique and customized, performance-based audit approach which differs from most traditional compliance based auditing techniques.  It also requires the completion of a safety culture assessment which is used to support the evaluation of the SAFE Work Certified Program, safety culture in Manitoba, and promote continuous improvement.
