Free Access to Canadian Centre for Occupational Health & Safety Publications, E-Courses and Guides

After PSAC's request last week on whether the union could get access to some material from CCOHS on telework, mental health and ergonomics at a reduced rate, CCOHS has decided to make some of their products free of charge to help organizations through this crisis.

Below is the list of materials now available free of charge.

Mental Health: Signs, Symptoms & Solutions

PSAC recommends the need to download the required material rather than sharing PDF files. The downloads are being monitored and this is important for CCOHS. Once a personal account is open, it is very easy to get information and resources.

Should you need to resolve any workplace issue, please contact your local, your component, or your Respective PSAC Regional Office.
