WHAT WE DO:
Bringing hope and healing after workplace tragedy
“I just wanted to say thank you so much for another amazing family forum. I wanted you to know that I appreciate all the support that I have received over the years. I truly feel like I have a new family and a new outlook on life. I feel the love and I feel the caring from so many and I am able to share in giving the same to others, something that I could never have done before I came to Threads of Life. Today I look back on my life from the first day I attended the family forum — I could never have imagined the impact it would have on my life and how it would change the person I was at the time.” ~ Tammy, an injured worker
Young workers join the workforce: how can we keep them safe?
May 1 marks the start of work season for many college and university students in Canada. High school students swell the summer workforce in June. Statistically, younger and newer workers are at greater risk of injury at work – many Threads of Life families know that all too well. Employers, parents, teachers and the young workers themselves all play a role in ensuring a safe and healthy job experience. There are many great resources on the web to support young worker safety. The CCOHS’ Young Worker Zone is a great place to start. Ask yourself “what more can I do” to keep young workers safe?
A weekend of hope and healing: Atlantic Family Forum
From June 3 -5, families who are living with the outcome of a workplace tragedy will gather together on Nova Scotia’s South Shore for a weekend of hope and healing at the Atlantic Family Forum.
After attending the Atlantic Family Forum in 2015, Threads of Life family member and volunteer Paulette Raymond shared her reflections in “Our weekend of hope” on our blog.
