Worker Safety Awareness Training

Each employer in Ontario has a responsibility to provide information and instruction to the worker on how to perform the job safely.
Our course assists employers in fulfilling this obligation by providing workers with information about their rights and responsibilities as outlined in the Occupational Health and Safety Act, as well as the importance of safety in the workplace.
