Prime Knowledge Limited Presents
Essentials of Occupational Health, Safety and Disability Management

Knowledge for a Healthier Workplace

Prime Knowledge Limited is proud to present "The Essentials of Occupational Health, Safety and Disability Management". The course serves the needs of the Occupational Health and WSIB/Disability Management Specialists. The essence of an Occupational Health Specialist is to be knowledgeable of elements of occupational health and safety systems, current legislation and WSIB/disability management to assist in providing a safe, healthy and profitable workplace. Our goal is to impart fundamental information to individuals who are wishing to enter the field of Occupational Health Nursing; refresh their skills while already functioning in the field; looking to enhance their knowledge of disability management and individuals entering the field of Occupational Health and Safety. Participants have found the course increases their knowledge base in health, safety and disability management to assist in preparation for related professional examinations.

Cancer Screening Saves Lives!

Did you know that?

When colorectal cancer is detected early there is a 90% chance of being cured

Cervical cancer is almost entirely preventable with regular Pap tests, follow-ups and immunization

When breast cancer is detected early, most women (90%) recover fully after treatment

If a cancer is found early through regular screening, it can require less invasive treatment and shorter periods of time away from work. Learn what you can do to reduce your risk of cancer by going to www.MyCancerIQ.ca.

The Toronto Central Regional Cancer Program is excited to offer workplaces in the Toronto Central region our free Cancer Prevention and Screening Awareness in the Workplace Toolkit that includes messages and information you can share with your employees via email, newsletter, social media and telephone recording. In addition to the Toolkit, we can come and provide an information booth and/or educational presentations to your employees as desired at no charge.

For more information, please contact the cancer screening team at 416-480-5331 or info@TCcancerscreening.ca.
