The Development Group was tasked with developing a standard which outlines the learning outcomes and other requirements for training programs designed for Ontario workers.

This Training Program Standard outlines the learning outcomes and other requirements that are expected of a training program, in order for it to be approved by the Chief Prevention Officer (CPO).
CPO approval is granted to those programs that meet the Training Program Standard after a successful assessment and review of the program submitted. While reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the criteria of the Training Program Standard are maintained throughout, it is the responsibility of the workplace parties to ensure compliance with the Occupational Health and Safety Act. In determining what rights or obligations a party may have under the legislation, reference should always be made to the official version of the Act and the regulations.
