The Occupational health and safety awareness training provides a basic understanding of the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA), and does not replace any sector specific, hazard specific, or competency specific training.
This training introduces supervisors to the Occupational Health and Safety Act. It focuses on the health and safety rights and responsibilities of workers, supervisors and employers. It also serves as a general introduction to workplace health and safety.
Supervisors can use this free training program as one way to meet the minimum training required by the Occupational Health and Safety Awareness and Training regulation.
The program can be completed using the workbook or the eLearning module.
