Incidents from hazards in the workplace can have costly consequences for employers and employees alike. With a proper hazard management program, potential and actual hazards can be recognized, assessed and controlled before they contribute to costly workplace incidents.
Employers and managers/supervisors also have a legal duty to take all reasonable precautions to protect employees. The only way to effectively carry out this duty is through a sound hazard management program. This half‐day course explains the principles of hazard management in an easy‐to‐understand format and introduces a practical hazard management tool. Available in both English and French.
