WHS REPORTING HOTLINE

At a recent meeting between the AOHNA and Workplace Health and Safety, it was brought to our attention that there are few OHNs utilizing the reporting hotline.  We also know that there are a number of concerns that we receive from various OHN’s.  It is important to make everyone aware of this free and confidential reporting tool to help support your practice and to bring about needed changes to the OHS Act, Regulations and Codes. 

Please utilize this number: 1-866-415-8690 and voice your opinions.

WHS tracks the trends from this number to analyze what areas of OHS code need revision….a good starting point is to ensure that WHS includes a definition of an occupational health nurse, or the proposed changes to audiometry and spirometry.  So punch in and reinforce your own practice and the work of the AOHNA Executive.
