Forging the Future of Agriculture Health and Safety

Presenter: Dan Trottier
Date & Time: Tuesday, January 28, 2020, 1-2pm Eastern Time

    • Join CSSE members in an ongoing project to design a national agriculture safety strategy. Building on the results of our 2019 PDC workshop, join this webinar to see the emerging strategy, to contribute your expertise, and to take away ideas that will enhance protection for the very workers that put food on all of our tables. The agriculture sector in Canada is one of the most complex work environments and presents a challenge for Health and Safety professionals who offer advice and guidance. In an industry that is already heavily regulated for food safety, animal welfare, & environmental protection, the challenge will be generating momentum for yet another project. Participate in this webinar to help build that momentum. We will examine opportunities to engage and support the industry into 2020 and beyond, in leadership and at the farm gate.

      At the end of this session, participants will be able to:

      • Review the current situation for Health and Safety in Agriculture
      • Discuss concepts to improve safety at the farm gate
      • Collaborate on a framework to improve the future of Agricultural Health and Safety in Canada

Waking Up to Fatigue Factors in the Workplace

Presenter: Susan Sawatzky
Date & Time: Thursday, February 20, 2020, 1-2pm Eastern Time

    • This webinar will dispel common myths about sleep, inform on little known facts about sleep, and present many useful and practical strategies that can be used to manage fatigue at work and at home. Attendees will be empowered by several practical strategies and tools to better manage fatigue in their workplace.

      Did you know…

      • Fatigue is 4X more likely to cause worker impairment than drugs or alcohol
      • A fatigued employee is 3X more likely to be involved in a workplace incident
      • Fatigue is estimated to cause 20% of all vehicle fatalities
      • Unmanaged fatigue contributes to diabetes, obesity and heart disease

      When work and/or personal requirements cause us to extend our normal waking hours, it is important to recognize the health and safety issues that are created. Recognizing the symptoms of fatigue, and assessing risks in relation to fatigue, can help inform when mitigation is needed.

      In-Scope’s unique approach for fatigue management focuses on the importance of engaging and connecting with employees on the topic of fatigue through education and awareness building. This awareness allows for a foundation to communicate on the issue of fatigue and to develop processes to better manage the issue.

      At the end of this session, participants will:

      • Be aware of current best practices and be able to apply practical strategic approaches to managing fatigue in their organization
      • Recognize how fatigue impacts workplace safety and worker health
      • Be able to discuss current research, sleep based physiology, fatigue issues and barriers to implementation in relation to fatigue risk management

The New View of Human Factors and Ergonomics

Presenter: Suzanne Jackson
Date & Time: Wednesday, March 25, 2020, 1-2pm Eastern Time

    • In this webinar you will get an overview of The New View of Human Factors and Ergonomics and create a shift in your understanding of accidents, risk and safety. We no longer see human error as cause but as a symptom. Incorporating human and organizational factors into safety management systems and safety programs is a new view that has taken hold across the world.

      This webinar discusses what “safety differently”, HOP & social psychology tell us about controlling risk. You will leave with five recommendations for doing safety differently, taking into account human factors and system safety.

      At the end of this session, participants will be able to:

      • Take a systems approach to work
      • View accident causation beyond human error
      • Follow 5 recommendations for doing “safety differently”
