Course Summary

Effective July 1, 2014, Ontario employers have to ensure that all workers and supervisors have completed a basic occupational health and safety awareness training program. The first of its kind in North America, the new regulation mandates basic safety awareness training for all supervisors.

Expectations placed on a supervisor are always high. Our interactive workshop breaks down the responsibilities outlined in the Occupational Health and Safety Act and explains how those responsibilities directly relate to the health and safety of the workers you supervise.

Our content aligns with the requirements outlined in the Ministry of Labour supervisor awareness workbook.
