Occupational Health (by request only)

Health hazards are not as apparent as safety hazards in the workplace and often don’t receive as much attention or resources, yet their effects can be devastating. Empowering workers, supervisors and managers to interpret reports and Safety Data Sheets (SDS) as well as research potential health hazards is a vital function of any proactive health and safety program.

In this course participants will:

  • Learn about new legislative changes to WHMIS through the introduction of the Globally Harmonized System (GHS) for chemicals and controlled products. These new requirements change the way that chemicals are labelled, stored and inventoried.
  • Learn about the best practices and industry standards concerning occupational hygiene monitoring. Who, what, where, when and how to sample exposures to workplace toxins is imperative knowledge for any workplace wanting to be in compliance with both Provincial and Federal legislation.
  • Learn about how our bodies are affected by workplace toxins and exposures e.g. Asbestos, Molds, Biological Hazards, Noise and Combustible Dust.
  • Learn about changes relating to the Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) and the new Globally Harmonized System (GHS).
  • Gain an understanding of the theory and practice of occupational hygiene monitoring and interpreting occupational hygiene reports, including TLV’s and TWA’s along with other important terms and references.
  • Read, review and interpret exposure control plans and keep informed with the latest changes and requirements.

Audience: OH&S Committee Members, Managers, Worker Representatives and Supervisors.
