Who needs Hazard Awareness?
Workplace hazards vary significantly and they come in many forms, depending on the type of work being performed, as well as the environment the work is performed under. For example, construction workers may be exposed to slip, trip, or fall hazards from working off the ground, while healthcare professionals may be exposed to bloodborne pathogens from sick patients.
All employees must undergo proper training in Hazard Awareness in order to safely perform work. As such, this course is geared towards current employees and can be purchased in bulk by businesses looking for an affordable solution to comply with the latest safety regulations.
Employees in the following industries are most likely to encounter dangerous hazards on a daily basis:
- Agriculture and Related Services
- Automotive & Manufacturing,
- Energy & Electricity,
- Pharmaceutical and Healthcare,
- Logging & Forestry,
- Oil & Gas,
- Waste Management.
Who is responsible for training?
In all Canadian jurisdictions, it is the employer’s responsibility to ensure that employees have the necessary information, training, and supervision to perform their jobs safely. Additional areas of employer obligations and responsibilities under the Code include investigations, inspections, accident reporting, and the Hazard Prevention Program.
As an employee, you also have a key role to play in preventing work-related injuries and diseases by reporting any hazard. First, you have to be careful and take the necessary precautions to ensure your own health and safety and that of any colleagues who may be affected by your work or activities. Second, you enjoy rights under the Code: the right to know, the right to participate, and the right to refuse dangerous work. In addition, employees looking to improve their CVs prior to an interview can also acquire and complete this training program independently.
What do you need to learn?
To obtain a certificate in Hazard Awareness, you must become familiar with the most common hazards encountered in the workplace, how to identify and report them, how to assess hazards in terms of the associated level of risk, as well as how to control hazards through elimination, substitution or the use of personal protective equipment.
How long is the certificate valid?
Employees who work in high-risk industries should re-take this course on a yearly basis. Being aware of how to properly identify and report a hazard can save your life and/or that of a colleague in an emergency.
What other courses should I take?
Those who acquire Hazard Awareness Course should also consider courses in Health and Safety Awareness, Personal Protective Equipment, Fire Safety.
