1 Course Description: This course not only meets, but exceeds the new legal standards for Supervisor training, as set out by Ontario Regulation 297/13. The law requires that all Supervisors be trained in accordance with Ontario Regulation 297/13, be familiar with the Occupational Health & Safety Act (OHSA; "the Act") and its regulations, plus industry best practices, CSA Standards and published guidelines. Managers and Supervisors at conventional businesses, in Provincial or Municipal governments or any other type of organization or business interest that employs workers, including those in the Not-for-Profit sector, must know the requirements under the Act, their duties and responsibilities, and what constitutes due diligence. In addition, they must implement and maintain a strong "Internal Responsibility System." Participants in this course will learn how to conduct workplace inspections, hazard recognition, assessments and develop appropriate control measures. Reporting procedures and investigation of workplace accidents will be covered in detail. Participants will also learn about the Internal Responsibility System and Bill C-45 of the Criminal Code of Canada, covering prosecution of workplace-related infractions. This course consists of one full day of intensive training (8 hours of teaching time) Proper training of all employees is the legal responsibility of both the Employer and Supervisors. Under the Occupational Health and Safety Act, training is mandatory, not optional. Ignorance of the law is not a viable defense. Penalties for non-compliant companies can be as much as $500,000 per incident. Penalties for Supervisors who don't meet the legal standards of competence, or those who supervise workers who aren't properly trained or otherwise fail to meet the standards of legal competence, start at $5,000 and may be as much as $25,000, plus 25% Victim s Fee, and/or up to 12 month s incarceration. Penalties for Supervisors are assessed to the individual, not the Employer. Learning Outcomes: Upon successful completion of this course, participants will be able to: 1. execute and provide adequate procedures that prove due diligence measures have been implemented and are being followed, including the use of written procedures and documentation and verification of learning provided to employees 2. describe the concept of the Internal Responsibility System and take steps to implement or improve the company s current system 3. describe and implement initiatives that meet or exceed legislated duties and responsibilities of the employer, supervisor and worker 4. recount applicable regulations and how they apply to their individual workplaces

2 Learning Outcomes (cont'd): 5. describe the ramifications of Bill C-45/Criminal Code of Canada Section and understand initiatives to implement to avoid prosecution 6. conduct efficient workplace inspections in order to recognize, assess and recommend hazard controls 7. implement and evaluate hazard controls and measure their effectiveness 8. communicate and work more efficiently with a worker Health and Safety Representative or members of the Joint Health and Safety Committee (JHSC), whichever is applicable 9. conduct workplace accident investigations and understand reporting requirements 10. identify causes of workplace accidents based on the five categories: People, Equipment, Materials, Environment and Process Evaluation: The final mark for this course will be determined by the results of a written test. For the protection of the employer, supervisor(s) and workers, a minimum grade of 80% is required to become certified. Who Should / Must Attend This Course: All personnel who act in a position of authority over any other person in the workplace must have this training, including, but not limited to Owners, Managers, Department Heads, Supervisors, Forepersons, Team Leaders and Lead Hands. The definition of a supervisor is not dependent on job title or union designation. This training is required for all business interests that employ workers, including all levels of Provincial and Municipal government and all organizations, charities, etc. in the Not-for-Profit sector. Additional Information About This Course: Under the Act, Section 25 (c), a Supervisor must take every precaution reasonable in the circumstances to ensure the protection of the worker." This course meets or exceeds the standards set out by Ontario Regulation 297/13 and the Act to ensure compliance of the company and its supervisor(s).

4 Post-Training Comments From Participants of This Course * "I'm presenting this training course to the other members on our Provincial Association's board at our general meeting this month...along with my recommendation that all of our members take it. Our group needs this training." "I've taken a LOT of training courses in my 25+ year career, and this Supervisor program was easily the best!" "Great presenter who made dry material interesting. This was a great refresher for me." "When I was told I was scheduled to attend this course I didn t know what I was getting myself into. But at the end of the day, I was extremely pleased with the course content and how it was presented." "I really enjoyed the course and learned some things I had no idea I was responsible for!" "I was honestly impressed with the presentation, on a topic I thought would be a long, unbearably boring course. Very well done!" "I learned about many different responsibilities I have in my role as a Supervisor that I didn't know." "The course was presented with enthusiasm and was taught in a way that made everything easy to understand. Thank you so much for providing such an informative day. It was a pleasure." "This Supervisor training should be taken by all of our staff who oversee the work of other employees, including the General Manager and those who supervise students for only a portion of the year." "All of our Supervisors should sit through this course" "It was a very good course!" "I was unaware of a lot of the topics covered that affect me as a Manager. I will definitely be in touch for more training for me and my staff." "This training expertly outlined the roles and responsibilities and is essential in promoting the Internal Responsibility System that every organization should foster for the safety of its workers." "This is the 3rd time I've taken a Supervisor course...and HASCO's blows the other ones away!" "A very intense day of training. I can't believe other companies claim to teach this in only 2 or 4 hrs." "The trainer was really good...not at all boring, like I was expecting. I really appreciated his anecdotes from real-life situations. They really brought the material to life and made the course enjoyable for me, which made learning easier too." *Verbatim (unedited) comments provided anonymously by participants in Post-Training Surveys.

5 COMPARING SUPERVISOR COURSES Not all Safety Training Programs are Created the Same... As companies in Ontario are getting set to face the Ministry of Labour's new legislative requirements for Supervisor training standards (Ontario Regulation 297/13), many are faced with the dilemma of trying to choose the right training program for their needs, at the right price for their budgets. HASCO actually encourages our clients to shop around and compare what's available out there...because we know that our Supervisor Occupational Health & Safety course is the best quality training program available, offered at a very reasonable price. As you do your due diligence and research your alternatives, the only caution that we would pass on to you, is to be sure of exactly what you are getting, before you make your final choice. To help you make an informed decision, we've provided a simple comparison between HASCO's Supervisor Occupational Health & Safety Certification Course and the program offered by one of our leading competitors...the "800 pound gorilla." After looking through the comparisons on the next page, we're sure you will see that there are some pretty dramatic differences between HASCO training and theirs. And these differences are typical of most of the cheaper 4-hour programs available from other companies. The price might look a little better at first glance, but when you really "drill down" on what you are getting for your money, you'll quickly see that the value just doesn't compare to HASCO's Supervisor OH&S Certification Course. For more information on HASCO Training & Consulting services, please contact: Derek Bumstead HASCO-CA ( ) National Account Manager
