Establish, Maintain and Improve Health and Safety Programs with New Online Management Service

The Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS) has developed a
new online occupational health and safety management service, OSH Wise,
designed to help organizations establish, maintain and improve their health and
safety programs while meeting their legislative responsibilities.

The OSH Wise management service can help small to medium sized organizations
establish a health and safety program, as well as to adopt a continual
improvement process to meet their health and safety responsibilities and
regulatory requirements. The tool can also assist organizations in employee
engagement, staying compliant, manage incident reporting and help to eliminate
or reduce health and safety risks.

"The best way for an organization to keep its employees safe at work is to have
a well-developed health and safety program, and ensure that program is properly
communicated, implemented and improved on an ongoing basis. That's where OSH
Wise can help," says Chris Moore, Manager Training and Education at CCOHS. "We
wanted to encourage organizations to think broadly about health and safety, and
make it an integrated part of the overall management of the organization," says
Moore.

OSH Wise provides a web-based framework that promotes a systematic approach to
integrating the health and safety of workers into the everyday management of
the business.

The program will provide users with guidance and information and is enriched
with audits, tools, checklists, training and expertise from the comprehensive
CCOHS knowledge base.
