Equipment and machinery are installed and moved regularly at industrial facilities. What you may not know is that this type of activity meets the definition within the Occupational Health and Safety Act as "construction".
This 1/2 day workshop will help you identify the many tasks that are regularly performed at an industrial facility and that are actually construction in nature, and what this means to your workplace.
You will understand what a "constructor" is and what their responsibilities are. Typical project scenarios will be discussed and you will leave with a better understanding of how to apply this knowledge to your own workplace.
BONUS! You'll receive a copy of the Pocket Ontario Occupational Health and Safety Act & Regulations 2017 (Consolidated Version) - a $21.00 value.
This course is delivered in a public classroom and/or can also be delivered in an on-site location.
