On April 25, the Ottawa Catholic School Board hosted its 6th Workplace Safety lunch. Two student representatives from every Catholic School met with parents, employers and community representatives (like us!) to talk about safety in the workplace/volunteering setting. It was an enriching conversation about speaking up, knowing the rules and regulations, and emphasizing that your health (physical and mental) is most important.
So as you go out to volunteer in your workplace, don’t forget to inquire about policies and procedures in place to make sure that you’re safe!
