Supervisors oversee the work of others and can directly affect how work is performed. As such, Ontario's Occupational Health & Safety Act (the Act) requires employers to train supervisors and ensure they are familiar with the regulations that apply to the work they manage. When supervisors fail to meet their health and safety obligations, the consequences can be serious from worker injury and illness to Ministry of Labour orders and fines, plus Criminal Code of Canada charges and convictions.
Completing training that satisfies legal health and safety requirements is no small matter. Neither is finding the time to do so. For these reasons, the Workers Health & Safety Centre (WHSC) offers an innovative online solution to help supervisors understand and comply with their many legal responsibilities in a convenient, flexible and cost-effective way. Like all WHSC training programs, our E-Class applies adult learning principles to ensure training is engaging and relevant. In this online training option participants learn mostly at their own pace, any day and any time they chose during a continuous 30-day window. Although to successfully complete the course each participant must complete one real-time scheduled session with an instructor and other learners.
