Health & Safety
The Occupational Health & Safety Program has been in existence since the summer of 2009. Since that time, the Health and Safety Officer and the Nation’s Workplace Health and Safety Committee have worked diligently to raise the level of awareness for safe work practices throughout the organization.
The Squamish Nation continues to build on the momentum and success it achieved as the recipient of the 2010 and 2011 Canadian Society of Safety Engineering (BC/ Yukon Region) Achievement Recognition Awards for Organizations 51-500. The Nation was also the recipient of the 2011 National Occupational Safety and Health (NAOSH) BEST NEW ENTRY Award.
Squamish Nation is committed to safety training, and sessions are conducted throughout the year. Training programs included Boat Operators Certification, Fall Protection Certification, Spill Response Training, Electrical Safety, Personal Emergency Preparedness, Say No to Violence in the Workplace, Industrial First Aid Certification and Crosswalk Training for the Nation’s little ones.
Chen Chen Stway Human Resources Now & into the Future
One of Chen Chen Stway Human Resources’ primary goals for Squamish Nation is to be the number one employer of choice for Squamish Nation members and current employees. We can accomplish this by providing the best service to employees and providing progressive and innovative Human Resource programs, and by consistently reviewing internal and external Human Resource programs, legislation, policy, and training & development.
Print and Production
The Photocopy room provides support and/or guidance for document production. Staff are responsible for regular mail-outs on-reserve and deliver off-reserve information materials. We can produce booklets and other publications (up to 80 pgs) that combine colour and black/white pages. New technology allows us to improve our overall workflow and faster turn-around times for material such as newsletters, funeral pamphlets, Community Information Session booklets, directories, reports and census data. Producing material in-house significantly reduces our costs.
Some of the projects that we have produced include:
Design and Production of Health Journals, under direction from Yuustway Health Services
Awards and Certificates
Digital Billboard artwork for our departments
Flyers, cards and other notices
Design and Production of Community Information Sessions Booklets.
