Boating Ontario Student WorkshopNew and young workers are three times more likely to be injured during their first month on the job than at any other time. New and young workers are a specific concern for the Ontario Ministry of Labour. The Ministry continues to ‘blitz’ employers with young workers in 2019 and as an employer YOU are responsible for providing them with the knowledge and understanding that they need to work in a safe manner.  

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

• Technical Standards and Safety Act (TSSA), Spill Response Awareness & Emergency Response Awareness
• Gas Dock Operations Part 2: Practical
