SUPERVISOR DUE DILIGENCE < Back to Online Training List
Course Overview:

In Canadian industry supervisors can and do get prosecuted under Occupational Health and Safety Law. Employers have a duty to explain to their supervisors, the provisions of Occupational Health and Safety Law, and why due diligence has special significance for them. Conveying how safety laws work can be confusing and difficult to do, leaving supervisors with more questions than answers, so let this course help clarify some of those questions. By doing so, employers can help satisfy their legal obligation to inform their supervisors of Occupational Health and Safety Law. 

Using animation, with a touch of humour, this training will emphasize why it is important for supervisors to understand Occupational Health and Safety Law. The setting is a fictional workplace, where sectors of the company have a great safety culture and in other sectors – well let’s just say there’s an opportunity for improvement.

Learn as Milo, the Lead Occupational Health and Safety Officer, Bellamy Barrier, the Safety Manager, and a handful of supervisors guide learners through the three types of safety laws, and how those laws can affect supervisors. Participants will discover what supervisors need to know to understand their legal duties and do to act duly diligent. This course focuses on being a positive influence at the workplace.

After all, being duly diligent is showing respect, not only for yourself, but others as well.
