The Health and Safety Awareness course explains your rights and responsibilities as a worker on the job in Ontario, and what the province’s Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA) requires from workers, supervisors and employers.

It is important to understand what the law says and means so that you know your roles and responsibilities, and how this knowledge helps you to stay safe at work.
