Lunch-and-learn workshop to focus on workplace inspections

WELLINGTON – May 19, 2017 – Employers, business owners, managers, supervisors and safety committee members are invited to attend a lunch-and-learn workshop on Occupational Health & Safety workplace inspections being delivered by the Workers Compensation Board of PEI Tuesday, June 13, from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., at the Wellington Rural Action Centre.
