We provide FREE workshops to support New to Alberta workers (Temporary Foreign Workers, immigrants and refugees) and those who support them to know more about how to improve workplace health and safety and to better understand our rights as workers under the Occupational Health and Safety Act. We have had great success providing the workshop with learners engaged in a number of programs with immigrant serving agencies, ethno-cultural community organizations and Community Adult Learning Councils across the province. We would be VERY pleased to provide the workshop for your community members or to participants in your programs!
What will you learn? Some workers may find it difficult to speak up about workplace health and safety issues. New Alberta Workers workshop provides information and resources that help workers to better understand and exercise their rights.
