Daily Commercial News reports that the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (an agency of the federal government) has launched a new online course to help organizations of any size develop their own OH&S program.

This new course adds to the Centre’s lineup of over 40 "e-Courses" that are offered over the Internet and require as little as an hour to complete.   Students achieving 80% or better on the final online exam earn a certificate of completion.   These e-Courses are developed by experts, reviewed by government and cover a variety of occupational health and safety topics.  Some of the available courses that may be of interest to condo property managers and directors include:

  • Accident Investigation
  • Confined Space Management
  • Emergency Response Planning
  • Health & Safety for Office Managers
  • Ladder Safety
  • Pandemic Planning
  • Preventing Falls from Slips and Trips

In addition to the e-Courses (a few of which are free), the Centre’s website contains valuable resources on all aspects of occupational health and safety.  Check it out.
