Health & Safety Training

At HR Performance & Results, we offer a variety of customized health and safety training programs. As an employer, you have a due diligence requirement under the Occupational Health & Safety Act to take every reasonable precaution to ensure the safety of your employees. These programs will assist you with these due diligence requirements.

Workplace Violence Risk Assessment Training

In 2010, the Ontario legislature amended the Occupational Health & Safety Act to include regulations regarding workplace violence of which all employers are to comply.

The requirements for compliance include the following:

  • assess the risk of workplace violence and take reasonable precautions to protect workers from possible domestic violence in the workplace
  • develop and communicate workplace violence and harassment policies and programs to workers
  • alert workers of the risk of workplace violence from persons with a history of violent behaviour
  • train all employees, managers, and supervisors on the policies and programs

Workplace Violence Program Agenda

  • Requirements of Workplace Violence as per the Act
  • Why is this an important issue and why does the law exist?
  • What are the duties of employers, managers/supervisors and employees?
  • Risk Assessment Process (to be completed by the participants once the participants go back to the workplace)

After training is complete:

  • Conduct a review of the risk assessments and develop and/or revise policies on Workplace Violence and Harassment

Hazard Analysis

This training will be conducted for your Joint Health and Safety Committee. It includes an assessment of your workplace (s) for potential hazards and an ongoing action to correct hazards which is a legal due diligence requirement. The training will focus on the following areas: Hazards, Recognition, Assessment and Controls. It will also include an analysis on your jobs and your work-site for biological, physical, environmental and chemical hazards.

Respect in the Workplace

The goal of this program is to raise an awareness of the importance of workplace violence and harassment by educating employees and managers/supervisors on the key elements of this issue and to assist your company in minimizing the risk of workplace violence and harassment by giving participants some practical application steps.

We believe that adults learn when the content is relevant and practical and when learners are actively involved in the learning process. This program combines lecture, discussion, video, exercises and role-plays to optimize the learning process.

  • Define violence in the workplace and harassment and discuss the importance and the potential causes

Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System, or WHMIS, is designed to teach workers that work with or near hazardous materials how to:

  • Identify hazards
  • Know the hazards of the materials they work with
  • Know how to protect themselves from accidents and illness

WHMIS is a Canada-wide system which was created by business, labour and government so that people who work with hazardous materials on the job have the information to protect their health and safety. Everyone who is exposed or likely to be exposed to hazardous materials in the workplace is required by law to receive WHMIS training.
