IHSA Health and Safety Awareness Training Programs

Written by MIECO/OBBC/OMCA

Ontario is introducing new mandatory training to help protect workers and keep them safe on the job which comes into effect July 1st, 2014.

One way to complete the new health and safety awareness training will be for workers and supervisors to take part in a one-hour tutorial either individually or in groups using free, online e-learning tools or hard copy workbooks. The training is designed to help prevent workplace incidents and injuries by making workers and supervisors aware of their roles, rights and responsibilities in the workplace. 

Developed in partnership with labour groups, businesses and municipalities, the training will be mandatory for all workers and supervisors in the province who are covered by the Occupational Health and Safety Act.

Please visit http://www.labour.gov.on.ca/english/hs/training/index.php and choose the appropriate e-learning module for workers or supervisors.
