A Toolkit for Newcomers on Occupational Health & Safety and Workers’ Compensation.

Research by the Institute for Work and Health has shown that new immigrants to Ontario are not aware of their rights and responsibilities when it comes to health and safety, and workers' compensation.

A toolkit has been developed to help disseminate this information to newcomers.  Prevention is the Best Medicine is a toolkit for settlement agencies to teach new immigrants to Ontario about occupational health and safety, and workers' compensation.

The toolkit contains everything needed to deliver instructional sessions on these two separate, but related, topics within an Ontario context.  Included are sample lesson plans, slide show presentations for workshop leaders, and handouts for participants.

Visit the Institute for Work & Health to download the toolkit.
