Boating OntarioDid you know? New and young workers in Ontario are three times more likely to be injured during their first month on the job than at any other time. This issue should not be taken lightly.

The Boating Ontario Student Marine Safety Training Workshop was implemented to offer members a discounted safety awareness training to ensure your employees are in fact in compliance with the Ministry of Labour requirements.

As an employer, it is your due diligence to ensure that employees know and understand their rights and responsibilities under the Health and Safety Act. As their employer YOU are responsible for providing them with the knowledge and understanding that they need to work in a safe manner. This workshop provides general awareness training in advance of your required job specific training, to ensure the safety of all your workers. The workshop includes the following training: Customer Service, Health & Safety, WHMIS / GHS, Workplace Violence and Harassment,Dock Operations, Spill Response Awareness and Emergency Response Awareness.

New and Young workers are of specific concern for the Ministry of Labour. The Ministry has plans to ‘blitz’ employers with young workers again, this year.

To ensure your students are in compliance with the Ministry of Labour requirements register them for Boating Ontario’s Student Marine Safety Training Workshopin your local area.
