Supervisor Competency Training

The Chief Prevention Officer (CPO) has established the Ontario Regulation 297/13, making it mandatory as of July 1, 2014, that all frontline supervisors receive occupational health and safety awareness training which provides a basic understanding of the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA), and does not replace any sector specific, hazard specific, or competency specific training.

The training mandate under the O. Reg. 297/13 introduces supervisors to the Occupational Health and Safety Act.  It focuses on the health and safety rights and responsibilities of workers, supervisors and employers.  It also serves as a general introduction to workplace health and safety.
