Resources for Child Care Workers

When Day Nursery Centre, Winnipeg’s oldest child care centre, was confronted with a growing number of staff injuries it turned to the Occupational Health Centre (OHC) for assistance and information.

Management and workers at Day Nursery’s three locations worked with staff from OHC to develop a program to address health, safety and wellness in the workplace. The daycare centre made a number of changes to reduce health risks at work by using staff surveys, training, hazard mapping and job hazard analysis. These tools are available to share with your organization.

A new 15 minute video “A Guide to Workplace Health, Safety and Wellness” compiles the success of this project into a tool that can used by others in the child care field.
