IPAM BREAKFAST MEETING MARCH 17, 2017

IPAM Breakfast Meeting

Join your IPAM colleagues on Friday, March 17th  for an interesting session as outlined below:

 

The contribution of management system standards to Health and Safety in the workplace

 

This presentation will describe the development and content of ISO 45001, a new consensus standard for the management of occupational safety and health (OHS), now at the Draft International Standard (DIS) stage.  It will also provide information on our Canadian Occupational Health and Safety Management System Standard – CSA 1000-14 and the “suite” of OHS standards that have been developed to support the management of a range of OHS programs in a workplace.

At both the national and international levels, OHS management system standards adopt a risk-based approach that follow the Plan-Do-Check-Act model.  This provides a framework for organizations to plan what they need to put in place to minimize the risk of harm to workers and to other persons who may be affected by its activities.  These standards require the active engagement of top management to demonstrate leadership and a commitment to more than just regulatory compliance – to identify work-related hazards in order to eliminate or minimize those that pose a significant risk.

 

 

About the presenter:

 

Norma McCormick
Corporate Health Works,  Inc.

Norma McCormick is founder and principal of Corporate Health Works, Inc.  She is a member of several CSA Technical Committees: CSA Z1000-14, Occupational Health and Safety Management System, CSA Z1600 – 14 Emergency and Continuity Management Program, CSA 1004 Workplace Ergonomics and TC 1005 now developing a standard on Incident Investigation.  At the international level, Norma heads the Canadian delegation to ISO-PC 283, now developing ISO 45001 an international Occupational Health and Safety Management System standard.

 

 

Learning Outcomes:

  1. The contribution of management system standards to health and safety in the workplace.
  2. An overview of Z1000 and the suite of OHS standards under it.
  3. The progress on the development of ISO 45001 which is expected to replace BSI 18001 as the defacto international OHSMS

IPAM BREAKFAST MEETING, OCTOBER 21, 2016

Come join your IPAM colleagues on Friday, October 21, 2016 for a presentation on:

Cytotoxic Spill Drill; successes and challenges. 

The toxicity of hazardous medications, including cytotoxic drugs can present risks to those who handle or come in contact with them. Anyone working with patients receiving cytotoxic medications is at risk of exposure and should be trained in the proper spill cleanup of hazardous medication waste, contaminated materials and blood and body fluid/excreta.

WRHA OESH and HSC Oncology Program partnered and developed a Cytotoxic Spill Drill Checklist and began conducting Cytotoxic Spill drills at HSC in fall of 2015. The Cytotoxic Spill Drill was developed to gauge awareness of the existing hazardous medication spill management policy and provides an objective, standardized, evidence informed tool to evaluate spill response processes. This presentation will highlight the successes and challenges of implementing the Cytotoxic Spill Drills at an acute care facility that delivers cytotoxic medications to a large oncology population on a daily basis. The presentation will conclude with a discussion of the adaptability to the community and LTC settings.
