How well do you know Occupational Health & Safety?

May 17, 2017 | News

For those who attended the OH&S Health & Wellness Fair at SPH on May 17, there was an opportunity to meet the OH&S team and learn a bit more about who we are, what we do and the resources and supports available. Hypertension Canada was on hand doing blood pressures (they will be back on May 31, SPH, dining room 1 & 2 11am-1pm) and there was an opportunity to enter a draw to win one of two jam packed gift baskets donated by the Shopper’s Drug Mart on Davie and Kingsgate Mall.

If you weren’t able to attend the OH&S Fair, you still have an opportunity to win one of the two beautiful gift baskets. Complete the “How Well Do You Know OH&S” quiz below and submit to healthpromotions@providencehealth.bc.ca. Visit the OH&S intranet site (under Human Resources tab on PHC Connect) to find all of the quiz answers. Entries will be accepted until noon on May 29. The randomly chosen winners will be announced in the June 1 PHC News.
