Dear  Members,
 
Employers face several challenges in today’s marketplace when it comes to hiring the right employee who can be both safe and productive in completing job demands.  Musculoskeletal injuries are the leading cause of workers either being absent from work or needing job modification.  The fact that new employees have a higher injury risk while older workers are simply wearing out, means that it is increasingly more challenging for employers to figure out if they are hiring their next injury claim.  Adding to the safety concern is that employees may use prescription drugs or marijuana to control pain symptoms and in safety sensitive work this is particularly concerning.
 
Many employers worry that evaluating potential employees will put them at risk of violating Human Rights legislation but what is the cost of the not knowing?  Come learn about the strategies that are available to mitigate some of these concerns.
 
This event is worth 2 Continuing Professional Development (CPD) hours
