The goal of this free 12-week program is to educate participants about workplace health and safety using an ESL curriculum model.
Participants will have an opportunity to improve their language skills while learning about workers' rights in health and safety topics such as workplace violence, preventing back injuries, workplace chemicals (WHMIS) and identification of hazards.
English as a Second Language
In this unique program participants commit to attend a weekly, four-hour day session for 12 weeks. There is no charge to participants.
Participants in these sessions will be able to use this knowledge and information to increase their awareness of health and safety and to become involved in the health and safety committees at their workplaces.
This unique program has attracted attention from other provincial jurisdictions in Canada.
Courses generally start in January, April and September. Check back here for the next start date, or contact the Centre for more information. Private requests for organizations are possible.
