    Working at Heights: New MOL Regulatory Requirements
    Companies having 6-19 employees, need to ensure that their worker-selected Health and Safety Representative receives training to effectively perform his/her legal duties under the Occupational Health and Safety Act. The H&S Representative has many powers and duties under the Act. Participants will leave with an understanding of their legal roles and responsibilities.
    Ontario's Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA) states that workplaces with 20 or more regularly employed workers must have a joint health and safety committee (JHSC). At least one worker member and one management member of the JHSC must be certified. Certification provides training in health and safety law and the identification, assessment and control of hazards.
    JHSC Certification Part 2 provides the training necessary to complete certification to become a Certified Member of a JHSC by giving participants an understanding of how to assess and control common workplace-specific hazards using information gained from Part 1.

    Effective inspections are one of the most important preventive tools in a company's overall health & safety program.

    Participants will learn how to complete the Accident Investigation Report, take statements from witnesses and collect all pertinent information.
    Managers and supervisors must be able to demonstrate that they have taken every precaution reasonable in the circumstances" to protect workers. Furthermore, they must be "competent" to carry out their roles. This interactive workshop will explain their legal duties & define what it means to be "competent".
    It is the employer's responsibility to ensure that employees who have supervisory or managerial responsibilities are informed of these responsibilities and are adequately trained to know about health and safety issues. The increasing complexity of the work organization, work processes and work materials requires that managers and supervisors receive the necessary training specific to health and safety.
    Understanding how to manage occupational health and safety responsibilities and liabilities is crucial to employers, managers or supervisors who represent an employer. You must prove that every precaution reasonable under the circumstances has been taken for the protection of the worker; thereby, protecting you from financial liability and/or jail time.
    Effective health and safety inspections are one of the most important incident/accident prevention tools in a company's safety and health program. Using properly trained people in a planned inspection program will reduce incidents and property damage.
    Helping Supervisors understand their responsibilities to meet MOL requirements to be "competent".

    A hazard management plan will describe ways to minimize the likelihood of an incident by including 'controls' and measures to either prevent or manage hazards. Participants will learn how to implement and make a risk management plan more effective by monitoring the risks, and reviewing and updating the plan regularly.
    All accidents and incidents with high potential to result in harm to people and property must be investigated to identify facts, determine the underlying or root cause(s), implement corrective action, and communicate to applicable people "Lessons Learned". Participants will learn how complete the Accident Investigation Report, take statements from witnesses and collect any other pertinent information.
    This awareness training program is for anyone who supervises and/or provides direction to workers.
    Ontario's Occupational Health & Safety Act requires every workplace, having more than 5 employees, to create written policies on handling potential violence and harassment in the workplace; developing programs to implement these policies; reviewing these policies at least annually; conducting training on these policies. This training gives participants an understanding of the legislation and how to fulfill their obligations under OHSA.
