      E-blast sent Feb 11, 2019: Important info re: required HSC training


      This message is to provide clarification as to who is REQUIRED to take the health and safety committee/representative training according to Alberta OHS legislation.

      According to legislation, health and safety committee co-chairs or health and safety representatives MUST take Part 1) 2-hour CCOHS HSC online training and Part 2) approved agency (CCSA) HSC classroom training. All other committee members can apply to their employers for training respecting their duties and responsibilities as committee members, given that they apply within a reasonable time frame. It is the recommendation of both CCSA and Alberta OHS that ALL committee members be provided with safety training that relates to their position as health and safety committee members.

      Co-chairs and representatives must be provided with 16 hours or the number of hours the worker normally works during 2 shifts - whichever is greater - of training. The mandatory 2-hour online and 8-hour classroom based training (=10 hours) is

      Again, with all of the legislation changes affecting HSC the CCSA highly recommends all committee members be provided with training related to their positions on the committee, but, excepting co-chairs and representatives, it is at the discretion of the employer.

      The CCOHS HSC 2-hour online training is FREE and easily accessible. CCSA’s new HSC curriculum includes an introduction to hazard assessments, workplace inspections and incident investigations as well as all of the other OHS legislated requirements; all of which are part of the responsibilities of committee members. The cost for the CCSA 8-hour classroom training is $75.00 for members and $125 for non-members.

          Workshop Description

          Accountability is an integral component of an effective internal responsibility system.  To make safety a reality in our workplaces, every leader must not only drive accountability throughout the organizational structure, but each must also remain accountable for his or her safety responsibilities.  It’s no secret: leaders have more safety responsibilities than anyone else in the organization and leadership’s safety activities can significantly enhance overall performance. 

          In this theory-based workshop, executives, middle managers and frontline supervisors will examine the use of leading indicators as measures of safety performance.  Leaders will learn how to create an effective system for the implementation of leading activities such as the introduction of safety walkabouts and safety talks.  Participants will review topics such as the creation of a safety performance baseline, establishing achievable safety targets, building infrastructure for the use of leading performance indicators, integrating performance measures into appraisals, performance management and coaching for safety.  The tools within this workshop are designed for immediate application to workplaces aiming to effectively drive safety accountability.

          • Inspection definition
          • Types of inspections
          • Inspection preparation
          • Conducting a workplace inspection
          • Inspection findings reporting
          • Corrective action and follow-up

          Exercises

          You will be challenged to think analytically and abstractly regarding various aspects of the work environment that may lead to potential hazard, harm or loss.
