Unifor members who work in navigation and shipping, on railways and canals, in telecommunications and inter-provincial road transportation, on ferry services, in airlines, aircraft repair, banks, at ports, and other “federal workers” come under the Canada Labour Code. This Health and Safety program focuses specifically on health and safety provisions known as Part II of the Code. Participants see how to effectively use the Internal Complaint Resolution Process and the Right to Refuse to identify and eliminate hazards and try out such tools as body mapping, workplace mapping, analyzing committee minutes, job safety analysis, making a workplace inspection plan. The course also looks at how to use Unifor contract language.
