Building the Skills to Prevent Illness and Injuries

A Unique Approach

The Occupational Health Centre (OHC) provides working people with a unique service.  We believe the best way to improve workplace health and safety is to provide people with the information and skills they need to address their health and safety concerns.

OHC’s  team of occupational health specialists work with joint health and safety committees or other workplace groups to identify and resolve specific problems.

Building on Your Strengths

We respect the knowledge and skills of the people who are in a workplace everyday.  You know your workplace best. Together, we can find the best solution.

We listen to what people tell us about their workplace.  Then we explore together what can be changed to make your workplace a healthier place to work.

OHC can help you:

  • Identify health and safety issues
  • Investigate workplace problems
  • Conduct workplace-based surveys
  • Find workable solutions
  • Organize educational sessions
  • Develop in-house training programs

Solutions for a Healthy Workplace

Our workplace service is prepared to work on any occupational health issue.  Recently, we have helped workers and employers address such concerns as:

  • Respectful Workplaces
  • Workplace Violence Prevention
  • Noise Exposure
  • Indoor Air Quality
