Health & Community Services

 

Headed by Henrietta Van Hulle and a team of regional health & community care experts, Henrietta and her team serve this sector to address a number of challenges. These challenges are due, in part, to increasing client care demands, including: the aging population, increased client acuity in Community and Long-Term Care, increased obesity rates and increased prevalence of dementia-related illnesses.

 

Government, Municipal & Public Safety

 

Improving occupational health and safety is part of the government’s economic plan for Ontario. The Government, Municipal team are working to provide municipal operations teams with resources and training to prevent and manage the new wave of workplace health and safety issues along with course options for new regulations and standards.

Education & Culture

 

Educational environments encourage curiosity and discovery, but they must also be a place of safety. These workplaces are prone to hazards related to violence, exposure to chemicals or biological hazards, and more. Occupations such as cleaners, teaching assistants, food service employees and maintenance workers are faced with these hazards everyday while on the job.

 

Emergency Services

 

PSHSA’s Emergency Services unit has been serving Ontario for decades. With experienced instructors and proven training courses, we have made great strides in reducing and preventing occupational injuries and illnesses in the province’s Fire, Police and Paramedic Services by providing the Emergency Services sector with health and safety training services.
