Health, Safety and the Law
Ontario’s Ministry of Labour, Immigration, Training, and Skills Development requires all manufacturing leaders to have a complete understanding of the province’s Health and Safety practices, and to instruct their own teams on upholding these practices in the workplace.
During this course, participants will learn about a wide variety of topics related to Health and Safety throughout a vast array of production activities, and will develop the knowledge and skills necessary to instruct their employees on these same subjects.
Course material discusses the various laws and regulations surrounding Health and Safety in manufacturing workplaces, and informs attendees of their legal obligations to their employees, colleagues, and organizations. This course is an essential introduction to Health and Safety practices for manufacturing leaders of any type, and serves as a necessary resource for all Health and Safety representatives in the manufacturing sector. To learn more about the MLITSD’s requirements for Health and Safety training, see the Ministry’s program guidelines.
