HSPI's Response to COVID-19

Updated: September 2021

COVID-19 has certainly changed our work and personal lives and blurred the lines between the two. As we each manage through this, Health & Safety Professionals Inc. is committed to supporting your health and safety needs as required.

On Friday, July 3rd, the Ministry of Labour, Training and Skills Development announced that Ontario's Chief Prevention Officer is extending the time for completion of Refresher Training. If you, someone in your company, or a colleague of yours in Ontario had a Refresher training deadline between February 28 and August 31, 2020, you now have until November 30, 2020, to renew the training. This applies to 8,000 certified members.

We are offering all of our CPO-approved training courses via Zoom. You can register for Distance Learning here or email If you'd like to register for Supervisor Health and Safety Training email us at

We have updated our OHSA Reference Guide. The update includes a new chapter on Health and Safety Representatives, Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems, and an enhanced Biological Hazards chapter to include COVID-19 best practices. This book will soon be available on the App Store and Google Play for IOS and Android users.

If anyone requires COVID-19 policies, we will write them for you.
