CAMBRIDGE, Ont. — The Infrastructure Health and Safety Association (IHSA) has developed a two-day course for supervisors in a federally regulated work environment, which will be offered free of charge to IHSA members twice this Fall.
The course, ‘Basics of Supervising – Federally Regulated,’ will be held Sept. 23-24 and Nov. 6-7 at Grand Valley Golf and Country Club in Cambridge, Ont.
“I believe this course will fill a real need that exists within the transportation industry and the best news is that this 2 day course is offered to IHSA members at no cost,” announced Doug Heintz, health and safety consultant with IHSA.
The course will include: elements of supervision; motivation and communication; legal responsibilities; health and safety programs; workplace injuries and fatalities; and site emergencies and incident investigation.
It was developed for transportation supervisors, managers and dispatchers, especially those who have never received any training in supervisory skills or in their health and safety responsibilities under federal law, IHSA announced. For more info, visit www.ihsa.ca.
