Health & Safety and ‘Safe Series’ Posters
Since the launch of our poster series, RCC has distributed over 15,000 copies to retailers across Canada. Our members have used the posters in many ways, including them in orientation packages and posting them on safety boards and in lunch rooms. RCC encourages all members to display these posters to increase awareness and participation in developing a health and safety culture at every store location. To order copies, call Customer Service at 1-888-373-8245.
