North American Occupational Safety and Health Week is May 3-9! To acknowledge this week long event as well as the importance of health and safety in the small business environment, CFIB is hosting a free webinar on improving safety in the workplace.
As a small business owner, you’re already aware that a safe workplace for your employees is vital to the success of your business. But did you know that injury leaves account for more than 240,000 claims resulting in time lost each year? For a small business, employee absence can be critical. It can lead to an inability to get work completed on time, lowered morale, loss of money, loss of opportunity and it can even open up the possibility of lawsuits.
Large businesses have departments to take care of occupational health and safety rules and standards. Most small businesses don’t have those resources and must meet the same requirements on their own. What small businesses in Canada do have, however, is CFIB.
CFIB is here to help your small business become, stay and prove compliance with carefully crafted templates and worksheets to follow, knowledgeable business counsellors available to answer all of your questions via phone or email and, now, a free webinar!
This webinar, open to members and non-members of our non-profit organization, will provide simple steps your business can take to improve its health and safety practices. Safer workplaces save businesses valuable time and money.
