General Awareness Sessions

Awareness sessions are presentations of up to 2 hours in length delivered at your workplace by WSPS consultants. They are designed to help meet your legal duty to provide information about workplace hazards to employees.

The sessions will help your workplace implement a safe operating procedure.  They may be used  as a stepping stone to more in-depth training or to support training that other employees might currently be receiving.


Hazard awareness is the first step toward preventing costly workplace incidents, injuries and illnesses. Conveniently and quickly reach many employees at one time with a consistent message that’s delivered by a health & safety professional.

  • The primary focus is to educate participants so they can recognize the hazard or issue in the workplace.
  • Participants will leave with a basic understanding of the hazard and how it can be controlled.
  • Participants are encouraged to determine how this knowledge applies to their specific workplace.
