Good morning.
In my previous occupational health work outside of health care each organization had a very strong employee health team.
Often the safety group reported into operations and wre at a high level with the hierarchy.
My present organization is mostly focused on patient safety as it should be but we are trying to push to enhance a focus on employee safety.
We have no system-wide employee safety officer.
Do you have a dedicated employee safety organization?
How is it structured and where does it report?
What is its relationship with EOHS?
Thank you
