Why Occupational Health and Safety Training Courses Are Important

We provide workplace safety training courses to Federally regulated clients, and can also provide certain services to provincially regulated clients. Work place safety can be compromised by:

1) Unawareness of safety issues
2) Unfamiliarity with equipment
3) Improper work habits
4) Lack of attention or motivation

Each of your employees should participate in a job safety/hazard analysis so that he or she understands the hazards of the job and how to do the job safely. A safety instructor can observe the employee performing his or her work to properly assess their training needs. Additional training may be necessary for those who perform jobs that pose more sophisticated hazards. These employees should be trained on how to perform their job safely and on how to work within a hazardous environment.

This training should be taught by a qualified health and safety instructor. Can you think of someone more qualified than a former Canada Labour Code – Part II health and safety officer? I offer a free inspection of your workplace and free certificates issued to participants at the end of the course (included with the training fee). My courses are interactive and participant friendly. They are worker focused not “canned.” It emphasizes the health and safety rights and responsibilities of workers, employers and managers. As well, it offers a general introduction to workplace health and safety.

2) Committee members who represent the employer and/or employees.
3) Professionals with responsibility for workplace health and safety or the training of supervisors and managers.
