South Island Safety Conference 2018 | Saanich Fair | Monday, 05. November 2018

This conference offers the opportunity for employees to meet the legal requirement for annual training related to occupational health and safety committees.

Employers have a legal and moral responsibility to provide appropriate and up-to-date safety training for their employees. The type and required training will vary depending on the jobs.

For companies that are required to have a safety representative or joint occupational health & safety committee, the laws are very specific as to what is required each year.

For individuals, you should think of your own health, those of your colleagues and most especially your family and friends. Having the right training will help you be safe on the job, which also helps protect those who work around you. An untrained persona can and often does, endanger their fellow employees. Then there’s your family. They want you to come home. They want Mom or Dad, Grandma or Grandpa to be there. The help them, to support them to teach them.
