Upcoming Occupational Health and Safety Committee Training

3-Part OH&S Committee Training!

Every organization, big or small, requires occupational health & safety representation between the employer and employees. This occurs through a formal Occupational Health & Safety (OH&S) Committee for workplaces with ten or more employees. Training is a legal requirement. The law says Committee co-chairs in Saskatchewan must 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 NOTICE hazards, calculate risk, and work with others from the workplace on effective solutions. These whole-business benefits elevate your organization’s safety management system, creating a healthier, safer workplace for everyone.

Take your OH&S Committee to the next level. Register for our three-part webinar on OH&S Committee Training. This engaging series includes real examples from Saskatchewan community service and hospitality industries and covers:
