PErforM webinar series

The PErforM webinar series is based on the one day PErforM workshops. Presented as a progressive three part series, webinar one provides an overview of the PErforM program. The two subsequent webinars show participants how to complete the PErforM risk assessment tool and implement the PErforM program. For workplaces planning to implement the PErforM program, we recommend viewing all three webinar sessions to gain a better understanding of the entire PErforM program.

The PErforM trainers network provides a forum for champions of the PErforM program to discuss challenges and share learnings about its implementation.
