This FALL: 2 hour Ergonomic Content in Toronto; Fall 2014
Train the Trainer:
Mandatory Health & Safety Training – The deadline has passed.
Has your organization provided mandatory OH&S training to all workers and supervisors?

Ontario Regulation 297/13 came into force on July 1, 2014, meaning that Ontario employers are now required to provide basic occupational health & safety training to all of their workers and supervisors.

To help your organization comply with the Ergonomic content within this Regulation quickly, Optimal Performance Consultants has designed a comprehensive 2 hour ergonomic training program to provide you with an overview of this new legislative requirement, and to provide your OH&S Committee and Managers with an overview of the mandatory ergonomic standards & programs required of ALL employers in Ontario (called the Soft Tissue Injury Campaign).

Presented by Jane Sleeth & her team of Ergonomic Trainers at Optimal Performance, this interactive program will explain the new training requirements prescribed by Ontario Regulation 297/13 and will feature discussions about the key elements that must be in place in your organization to meet the Ministry of Labour for Ontario’s Soft Tissue Injury/Ergonomic Programs including:

- The rights and responsibilities of workplace parties under the General Duty Clause of the Occupational Health and Safety Act;
– The roles of workplace health & safety representatives and joint health & safety committees in the Ergonomic Programs;
– The roles of the Ministry of Labour and the Worplace Safety and Insurance Board in soft tissue injury/MSI prevention;
– Strategies for identifying and eliminating workplace ergonomic hazards.

The AODA is the Law In Ontario PLUS it makes for an excellent business case!

Only 30% of employers in Ontario are compliant with the Customer Service Standard (CSS) of the AODA.
As part of the CSS compliance, Optimal Performance developed an easy to use, effective elearning tool which takes approx 30 min for your employees to review, take quizzes and show learning has occurred.
Certificates of completion are issued upon completion of the E learning tool. The Provincial Ministry accepts our tool and its content as ensuring compliance with the CSS.

OPC Inc has now also developed a combined webinar & power point presentation which combines both the mandatory CSS and now the IASR educational requirements. This is now for sale thru OPC Inc.

These two educational and training tools are a cost effective & easy to provide mandatory training to all employees in your organization.
