The Creating Healthier Workplaces ( CHW) discussion list is an email forum for schools to ask questions, share ideas and solutions and gain advice on organisational health topics. These include health and safety, rehabilitation, employee assistance and health promotion.
Anyone involved or interested in organisational health may benefit from the list such as Workplace Health and Safety Officers and Representatives, Rehabilitation Coordinators, Principals/Managers/Deputies and Registrars etc.
Discussions on the list range from basic queries like how pesticides should be used safely to complex issues such as managing health and safety resources in schools.
Messages to the list will be received by all list members for their consideration/comment. Many queries will be answered directly by members. Some issues will require a departmental response or position, which will be provided by the Organisational Health Unit.
The discussion list has an archives section with a search function that allows you to view past messages and responses. As many commonly asked questions have already been discussed please check the archives first to see if your question has already been answered.
If you are unable to send or receive messages from the list, just unsubscribe and join up again. If the problem persists check with your local Internet Service Provider.
