Improving the health and safety of workers by speaking with a national Canadian voice.
Occupational Health Nurses from across Canada have been meeting informally since 1980. The formal association was founded in 1984 and incorporated in 1994. The COHNA/ACIIST continues to evolve and be the voice of Occupational Health Nurses in Canada.
Today the CSA Standard Z1003-12 on Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace was released. The Canadian Occupational Health Nurses Association (COHNA) is pleased to announce that the Standard can be downloaded free of charge from the CSA Group or BNQ. We found the document easier to download through the BNQ website. Members must register and they will be sent a link to the document to the email address you have registered with.
Please go to:
www.bnq.qc.ca, English, under "News” download the document CAN-CSA-Z1003-12.
This document is of particular interest to occupational health nurses and we trust you will be able to utilize these guidelines in your workplaces.
