OH&S Steward Training (two days)
HSA Occupational Health and Safety stewards and HSA representatives on workplace joint health and safety committees support their colleagues at work as well as required by legislation at all worksites. HSA is offering a two-day Basic OH&S Training workshop. Participants attending must commit to both days.

Basic Occupational Health and Safety Training is for OH&S Stewards, Alternates, and members of the Joint Occupational Health and Safety (JOHS) Committee who have not previously attended Basic OH&S Training. Workshop content includes the roles, rights, and responsibilities of OH&S stewards and JOHS representatives. Participants will learn about the role of the Workers’ Compensation Board, occupational health and safety regulations, hazard identification, incident investigation, worksite inspections, and making recommendations.

Priority for this course will be given to new stewards and representatives on JOHS committees who have not previously attended a Basic OH&S workshop. This workshop is a prerequisite for HSA’s Advanced OH&S training.

Participants registered for this session will receive wage replacement, accommodations, travel, and dependent care expenses in accordance with HSA policy.
