NRLC organizes a H&S workshop Saturday, April 25, 2015. This is a hands on, jump-start documenting system developed in
response to the need to address health and safety at work in a
systematic and timely fashion. The following areas will be examined: why
documentation is critical, specific types of documents to use, which
ones , when to document, organizing your documents.
need a way to ensure their health and safety at work is taken
seriously, that it is protected and addressed in a systematic and timely
fashion. The WHSCs three-hour program, 'Documenting
Safety' is a hands-on, jump-start documenting system developed in
response to this need. Participants will examine six basic areas: (I)
why documenting health and safety is critical, (2) ways to document, (3)
specific types of documents to use (4) what to document (5) when to
document, and (6) how to organize their documents.
Participants are introduced to various forms and reports in workplace settings. They quickly discover
these forms work together to ensure health and safety issues are
tracked from start to finish. Participants take part in a work refusal
and sit in on a JHSC meeting to practice their note taking skills while listening to interactive audio-led worksheets.
Hard copy forms, reports and various documents in the participant's manual are perforated and provide easy
access. These documents can be used as master templates, copied or
modified as necessary. They are also accessible as interactive pdfs.
Participants can apply what they learn as soon as they return to their
jobs. Documenting health and safety raises the profile of workplace
health and safety. With a strong, reliable, documenting system, neither issues nor workers will fall through the cracks.

On the invitation of the NRLC, two Action for Civil Liberties representatives attended March 11th delegate meeting to speak about the proposed Bill C-51, as introduced by the federal government. The guest speaker (right) asked the Council to oppose the dangerous legislation. Bill C-51 would effectively remove fundamental democratic freedoms guaranteed by the Canadian constitution.
The Executive Committee of the NRLC stands in solidarity with academic workers at the University
