Small Employer Program Building

Includes lifetime access

Course Overview

An Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) program is a plan of action designed to prevent accidents and occupational diseases. An OHS program relies on commitment, leadership and worker participation to achieve its outcomes. Some form of a program is required under occupational health and safety legislation in most Canadian jurisdictions. An OHS program must include elements required by the health and safety legislation as a minimum.

People who work in a field where they develop extensive knowledge are often asked to share what they know. A thorough overview of current training methods and techniques in adult learning are beneficial to both new and experienced instructors who find themselves in a coaching, training or on-boarding role.
