Managing Safety in a Diverse Workplace

  • Online delivery
  • eClass
  • 7 hour course, no prerequisites

As a diverse work­force becomes increas­ing­ly preva­lent in Cana­di­an orga­ni­za­tions, the tra­di­tion­al one-size-fits-all safe­ty man­age­ment is no longer suf­fi­cient. Diver­si­ty can cre­ate chal­lenges in health and safe­ty due to dif­fer­ent expe­ri­ences, bias­es, train­ing, and atti­tudes. This sem­i­nar will help stu­dents rec­og­nize var­i­ous diver­si­ty-relat­ed chal­lenges and explore strate­gies to address them, such as effec­tive train­ing, pro­tec­tive mea­sures, and safe­ty communications.
