Worker Health and Safety Awareness in 4 Steps
This training introduces workers to the Occupational Health and Safety Act. It focuses on the health and safety rights and responsibilities of workers, supervisors and employers. It also serves as a general introduction to workplace health and safety. This training program is for general awareness of rights and responsibilities and does not, in any way, replace specific workplace health and safety training.
Fundamental worker rights in health and safety include the right to know, the right to participate and the right to refuse unsafe work. Workers will learn where to find information on how to work safely by talking to their employer or supervisor and by being informed about the workplace health and safety policy and procedures. Workers can participate in health and safety in their workplace by being a role model to their co-workers, becoming a health and safety representative or a joint health and safety committee member, and participating in training. Workers will also understand that if they believe their health and safety is at risk, they can refuse unsafe work.
This one hour course meets the training required by the Occupational Health and Safety Awareness and Training Regulation 297/13.
