Supervisor Development

Health and safety legislation requires supervisors to be competent. In addition to the competency requirement, the Occupational Health and Safety Awareness and Training Regulation (O. Reg. 297/13) requires employers to make sure supervisors complete a basic occupational health and safety awareness training program.

Expectations placed on supervisors are and have always been, high. This course examines the responsibilities outlined in the Occupational Health and Safety Act and explains how those responsibilities directly relate to the health and safety of the workers you supervise, your health & safety as the supervisor and the culture of safety expected from your company.

This curriculum is designed to ensure supervisors are competent in health and safety, are aware of their duties and responsibilities under the importance of their role as a manager. This course will also aim to engage with all participants and demonstrate skills and tools to conduct their work effectively, maintain health & safety on site, all the while ensuring continued productivity.

This interactive course covers the OHSA and Regulations for Construction Projects or Regulations for Industrial Establishments, or can be tailored to cover both, depending on the needs of your organization.
