The Ontario Ministry of Labour recently announced the new Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA) Regulation for Occupational Health and Safety Awareness Training, which lays out the basic Occupational Health and Safety training requirements for workers and supervisors.
The regulation will come into force July 1, 2014, making the training mandatory for all workers and supervisors in Ontario. The ministry has developed a training suite including a poster, workbooks for supervisors and workers, and as well as new eLearning modules. In the spring the ministry will release materials in multiple languages. All materials are provided at no-cost.
