There are many benefits to workplace safety training. These include:

  1. Reducing workplace accidents & injuries:Proper safety training means fewer accidents. Reducing workplace accidents and injuries should be the primary goal of workplace safety training
  2. Enhancing productivity in the workplace:If a workplace is safe, employees are better able to focus on their tasks and more productive.
  3. Boosting employee morale:Employees who have undergone health and safety training tend to be more satisfied with their employers than those who have not. Employees who do not fear they risk injury or worse at work have higher morale.
  4. Saving money:Workplace injuries are expensive. They cost money in the form of disrupted work schedules, lost productivity, clean-up and repair, hiring replacement workers, time spent investigations, potential lawsuits and more.
  5. Remaining compliant with laws & regulations:Depending on the work environment, there can be any number of laws and regulations governing training and certifications required for workers. Adequate workplace safety training ensures your company remains compliant.

In order to be on a construction site in Ontario, workers must first pass a WHIMIS certification course, working at heights training, and either a worker safety awareness or competent supervisor course depending on their role.

According to the Occupational Health and safety Act (OHSA), employees have three basic rights:

  1. The right to know means that employers must provide a wide range of information about workplace hazards to workers and Joint Health and Safety Committees (JHSC).
  2. The right to participate means that employees have the right to be consulted, via JHSCs about workplace health and safety issues
  3. The right to refuse means that workers have a right to refuse work that you believe is dangerous to your personal health or safety.

These rights are in place to protect employees and to ensure that all workplaces are safe and productive.
