Occupational Health and Safety Awareness Training for Supervisors

Occupational Health and Safety Awareness Training for Supervisors

All supervisors in Ontario must complete a basic occupational health and safety awareness training program within one week of performing work as a supervisor. This is required by Ontario Regulation 297/13 “Occupational Health and Safety Awareness Training” made under the Occupational Health and Safety Act (“OHSA”). This 1-hour training session fulfills that requirement.

In this session you will learn about:

  • The duties of employers and supervisors under the OHSA.
  • The duties and rights of workers under the OHSA.
  • The concept of the Internal Responsibility System in relation to the duties of workplace stakeholders.
  • The powers and functions of health and safety representatives and joint health and safety committees under the OHSA.
  • The roles of the Ministry of Labour Training and Skills Development and the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board in occupational health and safety.
  • How to recognize, assess, control and evaluate workplace hazards.


This training does not replace any sector specific, hazard specific, or competency specific training.
