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).
In order to ensure that there are no concerns/restrictions in regard to reporting, the attached forms are in .doc and can be completed online. The report(s) are then forwarded to the Principal and your Union. Required responses MUST be sent to you. See individual forms for details.
The OCDSB Joint Health & Safety Committee (JHSC) has approved four (4) forms for reporting concerns/incidents.
