Free Health & Safety Support for Ontario Libraries

At Public Services Health & Safety Association, we provide employers with training, consulting and resources to address workplace health and safety concerns and promote legislative compliance. We all play an important role in preventing injuries and illnesses at work. That’s why we’ve partnered with SOLS to better support public libraries in increasing awareness and understanding your rights, roles and responsibilities when it comes to occupational health and safety.

We’re pleased to announce that the online health and safety resources portal for Ontario libraries is now live! This new addition to LearnHQ is home to a variety of free health and safety resources, including fact sheets, checklists, web tutorials and posters, all tailored specifically to the unique occupational hazards faced by Ontario library workers. PSHSA webinars and e-learning courses have also been added to the LearnHQ catalogue. Topics include: ergonomics, workplace violence, supervisor health and safety awareness and more. We encourage you to check it out! The resources change often, so be sure to check back regularly for new and interesting tools and information.

Please feel free to reach out to us with any questions or feedback, and visit www.pshsa.ca to learn more about how you can create a safer workplace.
