Prevention Link – Disability Prevention at Work
One of our proudest achievements since being elected in 2015 is the establishment of Prevention Link, an innovative disability prevention program that focuses on the link between the primary and secondary prevention of occupational injury, illness, and disease in workplaces throughout Ontario.
The program is supported by the Ontario Ministry of Labour’s Prevention Office and governed by the OFL’s Executive Committee and offers training, mentoring, outreach, and advisory services for unionized and non-unionized workers, workplace representatives, and employers. It also assists injured workers in Ontario by providing them with the skills needed to re-enter the workforce.
Prevention Link is a major contribution from the Ontario labour movement, and Team Moving Forward is fully committed to further developing the program and helping it grow in the years to come.
