The Ministry of Labour has released a new Ontario Regulation (O. Reg. 297/13) that requires Health and Safety Awareness Training for every worker and supervisor under Ontario's Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA). This regulation will come into effect on July 1, 2014.
The intent of the awareness training programs is to increase the 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 these awareness training programs.
The objective of this training session is to review legislation, and understand the associated responsibilities. This session will also review procedures for storing, handling, and the proper use of cylinders, as well as understanding the hazards associated with compressed gas cylinders.
WHMIS TRAINING is mandatory for all employees. Online training is offered for employees who cannot attend an in-class session.
Participants will learn how the law defines a controlled product, the purpose and meaning of information found on product labels and MSDS, how hazardous substances affect the body and how employees can protect themselves.
As of June 15, 2010 every Ontario organization must comply with amendments to the Occupational Heath & Safety Act (Bill 168) to effectively manage the risk of workplace violence and harassment by developing a policy, conducting a risk assessment, developing programs and facilitating training.
Mandatory training sessions are provided to review key issues relating to Workplace Violence and Harassment legislation and provide the information you need to understand your new responsibilities.
