JLP at the PSAC Atlantic Health, Safety & Environment Conference

Atlantic Coordinators Marc Diotte and Wanda Thomas were invited to host a kiosk at the 2022 PSAC Atlantic HSE Conference, creating opportunities to connect with JLP facilitators, meet potential new facilitators and discuss their contribution to creating healthier workplaces as JLP facilitators.

The JLP Project Manager, Dominic Lavoie, made a presentation and facilitated a learning activity to provide an overview of the training for occupational health and safety committees that will be piloted by the JLP across the federal public service in the fall of 2022. Participants expressed excitement for the new training for OHS Committees to be available in various location across Canada between September and December 2022. Those interested in attending the 2-days training can register on the JLP website.

About 100 PSAC members were in attendance and many facilitators shared the challenges of working virtually during COVID. Many facilitators expressed interest in continuing to facilitate when JLP returns to in-person workshops and many participants expressed an interest in becoming a JLP facilitator.
