I also provide consultation to employers on how they can be compliant with the provincial and federal legislation for health and safety.
For a worker, i will provide really simple tips and techniques they can follow at home or at their workplace to make sure their personal health is good and also that they are aware of the hazards in their jobs.

This will ensure that the worker is responsible for their own health, and does not have to rely on their employer to give them resources or advice on how to reduce workplace hazard risk.
