Office Hazard Awareness

Introducing a NEW special program designed to assist managers, workers and JHSC members working in an office environment. This training will give your staff the tools they need to create and maintain a safer more efficient workplace increasing the overall productivity and thereby the morale of the workforce.

We have designed 4 modules to specifically address the needs of any office environment. Are all modules mandatory? We would like to think so, however feel free to pick and choose. (the 'Salad Bar' approach)

The 3 R's include the:

  • Role of each of the workplace parties under the Occupational Health and Safety Act ;
  • Responsibility of each party to the Ministry of Labour's Internal Responsibility System; and
  • Right of every worker in Ontario:
    • To Participate,
    • To Refuse Unsafe Work, and
    • To Know.

Module 4 Emergency Planning and Evacuation
