Supervisor Competency Training

Popular Course Requested by Our Clients

In a progressive move the Ministry of Labour introduced Supervisor Awareness in 5 Steps training in 2014. This mandated training gives those in a supervisory position or new to a supervisory position a basic understanding on how to carry out their roles.  

The Occupational Health & Safety Act (OHSA) defines a supervisor as “a person who has charge of a workplace or authority over a worker”. With the high expectations and legal responsibilities that come with the supervisory position, supervisors must be equipped to carry out their roles to meet MOL guidelines competently. [OHSA S. 27.(1)(2)] 

Competence comes from a combination of knowledge, training and experience to organize the work and how it is to be performed, and performed safely.

You have appointed supervisors with experience and knowledge, now be certain that they receive the necessary training to prepare them to be "competent" for their duties and responsibilities.

Workplace Safety Group completely re-designed this course to cover more than the basic awareness training as outlined in the Act [OHSA.27.(1)(2)]. It provides those in a supervisory position an understanding on how to effectively carry out their roles.
