The Importance of Online Occupational Health and Safety Training

January 6, 2023

Occupational Health and Safety Training


In every industry and every business, no matter the size, ensuring a safe workplace should always be the employer’s number one priority.

Unfortunately, many workers today are unaware of the risks associated with their job which may lead to workplace injuries including slips and trips, vehicle related crashes, or inhaling toxic fumes. With the right training, workplace injuries can be avoided to the best of their ability and employees can continue to work safely and know what to do in the event of an emergency.


In Ontario, the Occupational Health and Safety Act, or OHSA, outlines specific requirements for all workers including Workplace Violence and Harassment, Occupational Health and Safety Awareness, and WHMIS & GHS 2015, to ensure safe working conditions in the workplace.


Online Health and Safety training is one of the many ways employees can gain a better understanding of the workplace injuries associated with their job. One step in ensuring employees can work safely is by registering for our online training courses.


To prevent these work-related injuries, Safety First Consulting has an online training platform where users can enrol themselves in several health and safety courses.
