Tuesday, May 7: ICBC’s Drive Smart Refresher Test

“You may be surprised at what you’ve forgotten, like what some everyday road signs mean or the rules for passing, or even what to do at a four-way stop. Maybe you’re not sure how much room you’re supposed to give a cyclist, or when you have to yield to a school bus. Here’s your chance to put your knowledge to the test – and maybe you’ll learn a thing or two.” — ICBC

Wednesday, May 8: Lunch & Learn - Avoiding Musculoskeletal Injuries

This interactive workshop facilitated by CBI is designed to heighten awareness of the common biomechanical and ergonomic hazards associated with manual material handling around the home and in the yard. Participants will learn the necessary skills to work safely and reduce their risk of musculoskeletal sprains and strains most specifically related to overuse and overexertion type injuries.
