IMPORTANT NOTICE for all: To ensure a safe workplace, it is important for all staff to be aware of the safety hazards and who to contact when safety concerns arise. If you have not already completed the online Safety training, please complete this training when you report to your next substitute/casual location. Please let the principal or leader at the location be aware that you need to complete the online training and discuss when during your shift would be the most appropriate time to do so. If you have any questions regarding the training please contact Safety Advisory Services by email at safetyadvisoryservices@cbe.ab.ca
