Manage the hazards in your workplace with a proven method that's easy to learn, use, and implement.

This half-day course explains the principles of hazard management in an easy-to-understand format and introduces a new, practical hazard management tool that has been developed by the prevention system.

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 supervisors also have a legal duty to take all reasonable precautions to protect workers. They only way to effectively carry out this duty is through a sound hazard management program.

This course is designed to serve as a starting point for companies that do not have a hazard management program in place. It will also help companies who wish to improve their existing hazard management programs. Participants learn simple and straightforward skills and techniques to effectively manage hazards in the workplace.
