Get your staff ready for the upcoming season 
Are you up to date on accessibility rules and regulations? Jennifer Threndyle is an AODA specialist with Workplace Safety Prevention Services. She is currently completing her Certified Disability Management Professional (CDMP) designation, her expertise in non-occupational disabilities, both physical and mental, helps WSPS customers ensure not only compliance with AODA regulations, but also the best possible alignment of employee skills with work requirements. Prior to joining WSPS, she held positions ranging from Labour Market Re-entry at WSIB to management of various government programs for persons with disabilities.

It's time for the annual update from the Ministry of Transportation with Officer Hank Dubee. This meeting has been designed to help you avoid unnecessary contact with MTO officers and provide you with the information you need to know to take a proactive approach to compliance. Make sure to bring your employees for this meeting. They are your front line workers.
