Our 3-Part OH&S Committee Training is BACK!

Every organization, big or small, requires occupational health & safety representation between the employer and workers. For workplaces with 10 or more employees, there must be a formal Occupational Health & Safety (OH&S) Committee. The members of the OH&S Committee play an important role in helping employers make sure everyone is safe at work!

You might be wondering, “Seems like a big deal – what do OH&S Committee members need?” The simple answer is training because it is a legal requirement. The law says Committee co-chairs in Saskatchewan are required to be trained on the duties and functions of a committee (Sask OH&S Reg 4-9(2). There’s also a more impactful reason than the law: this training provides OH&S Committee members with the skills, tools and knowledge needed to help the employer prevent job-related injuries and illnesses.

OH&S Committee training enables participants to spot hazards, calculate risk, and work with others from the workplace on effective solutions. These are whole-business benefits that elevate your organization’s safety management system, creating a healthier, safer workplace for everyone.

Ready to take your OH&S Committee to the next level? Register for our three-part webinar on OH&S Committee Training, which will be happening throughout February.
