Are you ready for Occupational Health and Safety Awareness and Training Regulation 297/13?

Are you ready for Occupational Health and Safety Awareness and Training Regulation 297/13?

Effective July 1, 2014 a new regulation of the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OSHA) comes into effect.  This regulation deals with the training of workers.  The definition of worker for the purpose of the OHSA is a person who performs work or supplies services for monetary compensation.  As a result this regulation applies to more than just your employees and would include casual labourers and subcontractors.

Under this requirement, workers are categorized between workers and supervisors with different levels of training required for each category.  The only exemption from this training if proof is provided that the worker has completed similar training either with their current employer prior to the enactment of regulation 297/13 or with a former employer.

Training must be provided and documented as complete.  The documentation must be kept on file until six months after the worker is no longer compensated by you.

A former worker can request a copy of the proof of training up to six months after leaving an employer.

Training for workers must be provided as soon as possible after their start date.  Training for supervisors must be completed within one week of promotion to supervisor.  All workers on staff must complete their training by July 1, 2014.

The OHSA provides free training workbooks for workers and supervisors.  Signed copies of the workbooks can be kept on file as proof of completion of the training.  There is also an elearning tool for both worker and supervisor training.   This takes approximately one hour to complete and a proof of completion certificate will be received upon completion.  Alternately there are several organizations that provide training.

Remember that time spent by an employee in training that is required by the employer or by law is considered to be working time and therefore the employee must be compensated.

For more information, please visit the Ministry of Labour’s training website at: http://www.labour.gov.on.ca/english/hs/training/
