CRCA Introduces Innovative Forest Therapy Walks

The Cataraqui Region Conservation Authority (CRCA) is launching Forest Therapy Walks in Kingston and to the surrounding communities, in hopes of encouraging area residents to reconnect with nature in a deeper, more meaningful way.
The practice of Forest Therapy was recently founded through the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guides, based in California. The founders of this mindful, healing and connective practice were inspired by the Japanese practice of “Shinrin-yoku” which translates as “forest bathing.” Research has determined that spending time in nature not only strengthens the human immune response and reduces stress, but also makes us more creative, mindful, and content in our lives.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR SUPERVISORS
With the new semester underway, we enter a period of time when departments are often hiring and bringing new employees on board. This is a reminder that all new employees, whether casual, part-time or full-time, must be provided with the required health and safety orientation. The orientation process, which consists of an on-line training session called Health and Safety Awareness and the completion of an orientation checklist by the employee and their supervisor, is outlined on the Department of Environmental Health & Safety website at the following link. http://www.safety.queensu.ca/orient.htm Not only is health and safety orientation mandated by the Occupational Health & Safety Act, it is an important first step in providing the information and knowledge employees will need to work safety in their roles. Please distribute this message to supervisors in your departments, so that they are also aware of this requirement. If there are any questions or concerns regarding orientation training, please contact the Department of Environmental Health & Safety at safety@queensu.ca or at ext. 32999

OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH AND SAFETY FOR SUPERVISORS
In order to help supervisors understand their role, legal duties and responsibilities, the Department of Environmental Health & Safety is offering "Occupational Health & Safety for Supervisors" training. The Occupational Health and Safety Act in Ontario defines a supervisor as a person who has control over the workplace or authority over an employee.  Therefore, in a university setting there are a wide range of positions, such as director, department head, departmental managers, departmental technicians, principal investigators, post doctorate fellows and in some cases graduate students, that could be considered supervisors. Building on the concepts and information provided in the mandatory on-line Health & Safety Awareness Session, the Health and Safety for Supervisors session will assist individuals in understand their role as a supervisor, as well as their legal duties and responsibilities under the Occupational Health & Safety Act and within the University’s Health and Safety Management System. These sessions are open to all faculty, staff and graduate students that have supervisory responsibilities at the university and have completed the mandatory on-line Health & Safety Awareness session. The course will be held in the Faculty and Staff Learning Facility in Mac-Corry Hall, Complex B176,  in the Lecture Theatre.

The next date for this training is:
• October 26 (Thursday) 1:30 – 4:00 pm

Please register through the Environmental Health and Safety website, https://www.queensu.ca/safety/courses/supervisor.htm
