Region 6 rep. at CROSH Conference

Jun 28, 2014

Recently a conference on "Mental Health in the Workplace" was held by the Centre for Research in Occupational Safety and Health (CROSH). OPSEU Region 6 was one of the sponsors. Brother Rick Hamilton, from Local 604 (Elliot Lake) attended as a representative of Region 6. Here is what Rick had to say about the experience: "The conference was an excellent opportunity to interact with academics, and lay researchers in the important role of studying the effects of exposures in the workplace.  It was nice to see the large contingent of labour representatives providing key input as to the impacts of poor hygiene and H & S practices that lead to horrific health problems down the road.  It was my pleasure representing OPSEU at this event." Thanks to Rick for ably representing this great Region !
