Course Description

Every workplace contains various hazards that can be hard to detect and classify. Workers are able to eliminate and prevent accidents by being able to identify them as soon as they are noticed.  It is crucial for an occupational health and safety program to precisely assess and control hazards.

This course is intended to provide employers, joint health and safety committee members, and management with the knowledge of hazard and risk management in order to improve the safety culture in the workplace. Methods of preventing accidents, hazards assessment, identification and control will be taught in this course. There are three modules in this course:

  1. General Knowledge
  2. Risk Assessment
  3. Hierarchy of Controls

It is important to note that this course is not intended to provide intensive risk assessment methods, but rather provide risk assessment knowledge for basic understanding. Each workplace must still provide site specific training to all employees, where applicable.
