Where should workplaces begin in their journey to occupational health and safety compliance and prevention? Consider the following.
Employers and the supervisors they hire are legally responsible
for among other things providing safe work, identifying, addressing and preventing potential job hazards and facilitating training for all workers to do their jobs safely. Quality training
is a necessary first step not only for workers, but the supervisors employed to help safeguard them.
Under Ontario’s Occupational Health and Safety Act
and Regulations, employers must ensure supervisors complete basic occupational health and safety awareness training in addition to knowledge and competency-based training specific to the workplace.
Workers Health & Safety Centre (WHSC) is Ontario’s only government designated training provider with more than 35 years experience delivering occupational health and safety (OHS) training, now including Supervisor Health & Safety Training
