Health & Safety Training

What’s all this about Awareness Training?

Like other employers, school boards are required to complete new health and safety awareness training under the Occupational Health and Safety Act. These requirements are enforceable as of July 1, 2014. The Ministry of Labour has just released A Guide to OHSA Requirements for Basic Awareness Training. It’s a great resource. 


It is ETFO Policy “that union-friendly health and safety instructors and/or materials, including those provided by the Workers Health and Safety Centre, are used by district school boards for all health and safety training.”
