Laurier Supervisor Health & Safety Awareness Training

MANDATORY awareness training for both workers and supervisors

Ontario Regulation (O. Reg 297/13) comes into force on July 1, 2014, setting out MANDATORY occupational health and safety awareness training to be provided to workers and supervisors.

To ensure Laurier is in compliance with theOccupational Health and Safety Act and O. Reg. 297/13, all Laurier employees must complete MANDATORY on-line awareness training before September 30, 2014. Supervisors are responsible for ensuring their staff complete the Laurier Worker Awarenesstraining.

The intent of the mandatoryawareness training program is toincrease workers' and supervisors' knowledge of basic rights and responsibilities under the OHSA and heighten awareness of basic workplace health and safety issues. The training promotes the Internal Responsibility System (IRS), which is based on the principle that workplace parties themselves are in the best position to identify health and safety problems and develop solutions. Employers, supervisors and workers share in the responsibility for occupational health and safety and their roles and responsibilities are an important component of the awareness training programs.

The legislation requires employers to ensure that workers and supervisorsreceive training on:/>/>

  • The rights and duties of the workplace parties under the OHSA.
  • The role of the Joint Health & Safety Committee under the OHSA.
  • The roles of the Ministry of Labour, Workplace Safety and Insurance Board and Safe Workplace Associations designated under the OHSA.
