For more than 30 years the WHSC has partnered with the labour movement to ensure workers and their representatives get the training needed
to help prepare for the pursuit of safer and healthier workplaces.
At the heart of this partnership is our shared philosophy of “workers training workers
WHSC worker trainers are drawn directly from Ontario workplaces. But to become qualified to deliver WHSC training, these workers must first complete the comprehensive WHSC Instructor Training Program
Participants build upon the knowledge and skills learned in the WHSC Level 1 Health and Safety Program
(a pre-requisite to enrol in Instructor Training). This includes the various learning techniques essential to adult education
. They explore and then put into practice the communication skills essential to facilitating the learning environment. Also discussed is why their real work experiences and knowledge are so important to adult learning and how to blend this into the learning process.
Graduates of the WHSC Instructor Training Program become an important resource for the labour movement helping to build on its capacity
to effectively deliver quality health and safety training. Equally important workers will gain access to health and safety training from a source they can trust—the WHSC.
The WHSC Instructor Training Program is one of many being offered as part of the 2016 CLC Ontario Region Summer School and Women’s Summer School.
