Do you know someone who has made a health and safety contribution in the workplace and should be recognized? The SFL's Occupational Health and Safety Committee would like to hear from you. Please complete and return a 2019 Nomination form
This is a sample form that sectors can change to be specific to their workplaces. The form can be used in bargaining and for proof of workload issues.
We ask that you complete the form if you think there is a workload issue and forward it to your Local/Region/OH&S Committee and to Bonnie McRae at email@example.com. The form would then be provided to the SGEU OH&S Standing Committee to compile statistical data for review of trends.
Our goal would be to identify what and where the workload issues are. We can look at avenues to help resolve the issues.
