Health and Safety Awareness Training for Supervisors in Ontario is an interactive online training course that meets the requirements under the Occupational Health and Safety Awareness and Training Regulations (O. Reg 297/13) that came into force on July 1, 2014. This course provides basic health and safety awareness information for Ontario supervisors that should be used in conjunction with on-site training that covers workplace specific hazards and issues.
The Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA) and regulations define the law regarding the roles & responsibilities of employers, supervisors and workers to ensure health & safety in the workplace. Compliance of each party to perform their specific responsibilities supports an "internal responsibility system" and is required to maintain a safe work environment.
This course will help you keep yourself and others safe in the workplace. Knowing your duties as a supervisor, as well as knowing the 'rights' and duties of workers, and the responsibilities of your employer, will help you achieve this goal. Being aware of occupational illness and workplace hazards, and how to control them will also promote a safe work environment. Knowing where to find additional information and assistance if needed, will help you in your role as supervisor.
