According to the latest health and safety legislation, the Occupation Safety and Health Act (OSHA), it is mandatory for both workers and supervisors to undergo training on occupational health and safety Ontario. This comprises of a basic workplace safety and health course, as well as sector-specific training.

For this, you need the services of an accredited health and safety consultant. He/she will come over to your workplace, carefully study the risks and make a note of the occupational hazards involved. The consultant will then prepare an occupational safety and health training program – there are separate tracks for workers and supervisors – which can be administered to your employees. If they complete the training successfully, they are individually awarded certificates that are valid for life.

Learning to follow safe practices at work is part of the program. Doing so can avoid major accidents that have an impact on your business. This is the reason why there has been an increase in health and safety jobs worldwide. Some companies with rapidly changing work scenarios choose to have health and safety consultants on their payroll so that these trained professionals can constantly identify areas for improvement; while other companies may choose to outsource this to health and safety professionals for making their workplaces safer.
