Supervisor Competency Training

Most Frequent Course Requested by Our Clients  

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 MLTSD guidelines competently. [OHSA S. 27.(1)(2)] 

In a progressive move the Ministry of Labour, Training and Skills Development introduced Supervisor Awareness in 5 Steps training. 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.

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.
