IHSA Safety Podcast: Supervising and the Canada Labour Code Part 2

Our multi-part series on Supervisors kicks-off with a discussion with Federal Labour Program Ontario Regional Director, Bruce Christianson and continues with Doug Heintz, Manager – Health & Safety Training. Find out more by visiting the podcast links below.

Program Description

Workers are often promoted to a supervisory position because of their high-quality work and experience. This program gives federally regulated workers the training they need to become effective supervisors.

Participants will learn how to fulfil their role as a supervisor and about their responsibilities under the Canada Labour Code, Part II to manage health and safety in the workplace. Once they understand what to do, the program gives them the tools to meet their health and safety responsibilities and ensure a productive workplace.

 

Program Content

 

1. Legal Responsibilities

Participants will learn how to:

  • Locate and cite sections in the Canada Labour Code, Part II
  • Identify the duties of the main workplace parties in the Canada Labour Code, Part II.
 

2. Elements of Supervising

Participants will learn how to integrate health and safety into the supervisor’s daily activities of planning, organizing, directing, and controlling work.

 

3. Supervisor Safety Tasks

Participants will learn how to perform the duties of a supervisor by:

  • Communicating hazard information through safety talks and worker orientations
  • Monitoring health and safety activities through formal workplace inspections
  • Investigating incidents and determine the immediate and underlying causes
  • Enforcing health and safety rules
  • Documenting workplace activities in a log book.
 

Learning Evaluation

 

There is a final test at the end of this program.

 

Prerequisites

There are no prerequisites for this course.

 

Who Should Attend?

 

Supervisors—especially those who have never received any training in supervisory skills or in their health and safety responsibilities under federal law. Participants who are provincially regulated under the Occupational Health and Safety Act should take the Basics of Supervising program for provincially regulated workplaces.

 

Important Notice

The Basics of Supervising Training Program will help prepare supervisors to perform their health and safety duties competently. However, after completing the training, the employer is responsible for validating a supervisor’s health and safety competency. Additional training in workplace-specific hazards and the regulations that apply to those hazards may be required.
