Health and Safety Training
Why do smart employers invest in health and safety training? Because not only is a safer business a successful business, proper health and safety training is a legal requirement.
As an employer, you are most responsible for health and safety in the workplace under the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA). However, health and safety is a concern for all employees. Ensuring that your business has proper training protocols in place and that all of your employees have received the level of training required by law so that they can work safely, is non-negotiable.
Why is Health and Safety Training Important?
Many small business owners do not understand or fully appreciate the extent of their training obligations. Not only does the OHSA require that all workers in any business of any size receive general health and safety awareness training, but it also mandates that employers provide their workers with additional training regarding myriad other workplace issues. This depends on the particular industry in which a business operates.
