Worker health and safety training is vital for all businesses.

All businesses in Canada must be concerned with the level of training provided to their employees in the area of worker health and safety awareness. Not only is this a wise decision to foster a safer and healthier workplace, but it’s mandated by the Canadian government, under the Occupational Health and Safety Act.

The Ministry of Labour requires that both employees and supervisors complete a specific amount of training in the area of workplace safety and worker health. This training focuses on a number of key areas, including:

  • Worker rights
  • Workplace safety procedures
  • MSDS
  • Supervisor responsibilities
  • Employee responsibilities

Worker health and safety training can take one of two forms – either classroom-based learning, or online courses. Regardless, the course chosen must comply with the regulations set forth by the Occupational Health and Safety Act, and must cover a minimum number of areas.
