Canada Safety Council launches New Occupational Health & Safety Online Training Courses
As a student, having a summer job is a great way to gain early work experience and get a head start on your career. However, if your focus is exclusively on learning new job skills and making a good impression, safety can be forgotten.
According to the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety, in 2009, 35 Canadian workers aged 15 to 24 were fatally injured as a result of a workplace hazard, and nearly 33,000 young workers were injured on the job. Many young workers are entering an unfamiliar environment, with new people, new rules and hazards they’ve never encountered before. New workplace relationships can be intimidating, but safety must be everyone’s top priority.
As summer quickly approaches, and new jobs are commencing for students, Canada Safety Council (CSC) launches new occupational health and safety online training courses. Private sector partnerships have become increasingly important and CSC has partnered with professionals who have more than a decade of health and safety experience, and years invested in research and development.
These new online training courses offer engagement, comprehension and retention in a dynamic, interactive style. The courses are relevant in real world experiences, and comply with legislation in all provinces. These courses are very affordable and accessible anytime and anywhere.
