Occupational Health & Safety Program

Section 3 of the Occupational Health and Safety Regulation requires that employers the size of the Peace River North School District put in place a formal Occupational Health and Safety Program.  The purpose of having a safety program is not simply to satisfy some mandated requirement, but rather to prevent injuries and illnesses so that everyone can go home safe at the end of the day. Every employee has three fundamental rights; they are:


  • The Right to Know what hazards they face on the job
  • The Right to Participate in health and safety activities
  • The Right to Refuse work they feel is unsafe


The following list are links to resources for your convenience.
