The provincial Ministry of Labour Inspectors will be in a position to confirm compliance with this legislation as of July 1, 2014. Over the course of this interactive session, participants will develop and have an opportunity to apply information relating to the 7 main points, required under Regulation 297/13.
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to understand:
The duties and rights of workers under the Act.

Course Length and Options:
The course will vary in length based on whether or not WHMIS training is required. The program material can be covered in 2 hours for clients that have already conducted WHMIS training. If WHMIS training is required, 4 hours will be required to cover all course content. A number of courses can be scheduled over the same training day in order to maximize the training received and cost-effectiveness of the program.
A written comprehension check will be administered, as part of the training module. Participants that successfully complete the program will be provided with a Record of Training (ROT).
