Worker Health & Safety Awareness Training

Worker Health and Safety Awareness Training will be mandatory for all workers in Ontario regardless of industry. This law goes into in effect as of July 2014. Although the Ministry of Labour offers a free course, they don’t keep track of the training records for you. Our course meets ministry standards while giving you peace of mind knowing we have all trainee records on file in case you need it.

This course will educate you on the rights and responsibilities in the workplace for employees, managers, supervisors and employers. By the end of this course you will know duties in the Internal Responsibility System and your rights about workplace hazards. This will help ensure the health and safety and over all wellbeing of not only yourself but also others around you in the workplace.


You will learn:
