Health and Safety Awareness Training for Workers 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 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 stay safe in the workplace. Knowing your "rights" and duties, as a worker, will help you achieve this goal, as will knowing the duties of your employer and supervisor. Being involved in health & safety activities, such as participating as a health & safety representative or committee member, will also promote a safe work environment. You should know where to find additional information & assistance if needed, and be able to identify workplace hazards.
Health and Safety Awareness Training for Workers may be taken in the comfort of your own home or on the workplace computer system. Depending on your pace, it takes approximately 45 min to complete. You may progress through the online course at your own pace and may stop & start at any time. You are required to achieve a grade of 75% or higher in order to pass, and are allowed 2 attempts at the test. A certificate of completion (and/or wallet card) may be printed at successful completion of the Health and Safety Awareness Training for Workers Test.
