OHS Program Development

Cost: $1,340 for the entire certificate; $449 plus HST for each individual course

Proper program development is critical for effective and functional OHS within a workplace. In this course, participants will develop the essential knowledge and skills required to develop, coordinate, implement, maintain, and evaluate an OHS program in their organization, within the frameworks of OHS legislation on Prince Edward Island.

Using a risk management mindset, this course will also prepare participants to develop the policies and procedures required for a written OHS program (including workplace inspections, accident investigations, record keeping, first aid, ergonomics, emergency preparedness, job hazard analysis, training, work procedures and regular program review).

Special focus will be given to psychological health and safety, a growing focal point in Canadian workplaces.
