Supervisor Training



Supervisors are critical to your organization. They make decisions on a daily basis, and direct workers. Your supervisors are responsible for quality, worker safety, customer satisfaction, and the day-to-day operation of your business. Some supervisors are in their positions because they were great at their jobs but they may not be ready for the health and safety aspects of their new endeavor. Now they must enforce your safety rules, make sure workers are working safely, and with all the protective equipment that that came with the job. They have to manage workers that they see regularly as well as those that work off site. As the owner or manager of the business or organization, you have a responsibility to train your supervisors. It’s not only the law, it’s the right thing to do. Supervisors, you want to know your legal occupational health and safety responsibilities so that you can keep your workers safe. 

Health & Safety Professionals Inc. offers a two-day course that assists supervisors and employers in meeting their legal obligation of appointing “competent” supervisors in Ontario. Supervisors will discuss legal requirements imposed on them by legislators and will learn how to incorporate their knowledge into their actions and workplace performance. This course is appropriate for all sectors in Ontario and covers material from the Ministry of Labour, Training and Skills Development's “Supervisor Health and Safety Awareness in 5 Steps.”

Topics include: Supervisors/Managers as Leaders; Health and Safety Law; Competent Supervisors; Due Diligence; Contractor Safety Management; Reporting Requirements; Incident Investigation; Emergency Preparedness and Response; Emerging Topics (Scent Policies; Cannabis in the Workplace, COVID-19).

If the dates we have don’t suit your needs, or you prefer that we come to your workplace, we are happy to do so. We love to travel to different parts of our great province.

Are you a federal workplace? That’s not a problem; we have several federal workplaces as clients and have delivered Federal Supervisor training. If you’d like a reference, we can provide that for you. 

Are you outside of Ontario? We are happy to travel anywhere in Canada (or beyond). Keeping workers safe and supervisor responsibility does not differ much in the various provinces and territories. Let us know how we can help and we can adapt our course to meet your needs.

If you want us to develop a course that you can deliver yourself, let us know. We’ve done that too. We provide you with the slides, speaker notes, case studies and any other support you need so that your in-house facilitators are successful. We can deliver the training once or as many times as you require before we hand it over.
