Mental Health in the Workplace

Mental Health has long since been a taboo subject of conversation. For a long time it was considered polite to mind your own business and to avoid drawing attention to or question another person’s mental health issues. However, with upcoming legislative changes in Bill 30, employers have even more responsibilities to ensure the well-beingof their workers including their mental health.

Domestic Violence & OHS

Domestic violence does not play preference to gender, religion, marital status, cultural beliefs or financial status. Domestic Violence is around us every day, and is effecting working Albertans at home and on the job. The old saying “Leave your home/work problems at the door” is easier said than done. What happens when issues at home show up to work and effect the general well-being of employees?

Working in Severe Weather

Thunderstorms are common in hot weather, during the summer months. Lightning occurs about once every three seconds in Canada.

Lightning is up to a million times more powerful than household current, and it can be deadly. In Canada, lightning takes an average of six to seven lives every year and seriously injures up to 60 to 70 people. Lightning causes about half the forest fires in Western Canada, the number of lightning strikes in Eastern Canada is highest in Windsor, Ontario followed by Toronto and Hamilton. Lightning usually strikes protruding objects (trees, towers, buildings, etc.) and higher ground. Metal objects also are at a very high risk of getting struck by lightning.

When a person is struck by lightning, the injury could be made worse from personal electronic devices such as cell phones, beepers, iPods, and Walkman’s. Metal conducts the electricity which causes burns. Jewelry, coins and personal electronic devices have been known to cause burns.

Prompt Incident Reporting

Prompt Incident Reporting – it’s hammered into us during orientations, during safety meetings and tool box meetings. Is it really important? …Why?

There are really two primary reasons why incidents and injuries should be reported immediately:

  • To prevent the injury from getting worse
  • To correct an identified hazard before a person has an incident and now, because of legislative changes that have come into effect with the introduction of Bill 30, Potentially Serious Incidents also require reporting to OHS.

Working in Poor Air Conditions

British Columbia has declared a state of emergency due to the almost 600 wildfires that are plaguing the province. Hot, dry weather conditions have made the situation worse, along with lightning strikes causing even more fires to add to the problem.

The smoke from the BC fires has been pushing it's way into Alberta and is creating very poor air quality and air advisory warnings from Environment Canada to be issued. The Air Quality Health Index (AQHI) indicates that air quality is forecast as a 10 (High Risk) for Friday August 17, and 9 overnight and into Saturday. Moving into the weekend it should drop to a moderate risk of 5.
