OCDSB Health and Safety Forms

All OCEOTA members need to be aware of their responsibility to report to the employer (OCDSB) and the union (OCEOTA) any issues which arise regarding Violence/Safety in the Workplace and Student Safety concerns. Employee violence issues are ensconced in what was Bill 168 now Section 32 of the Ontario Health & Safety Act (OHSA).
