Construction 101 – Phase 1


Musculoskeletal Disorders


Injuries are common in the workplace. In this course, you will examine and understand various situations that lead to the development of Musculoskeletal Disorders (injuries related to muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones, and nerves) and implement best practices and techniques to protect yourself and others from injury.


Spill Awareness


This course provides information on the safe methods to clean and dispose of spills, using knowledge from the WHMIS 2015 document. After identifying and following all safety procedures, the awareness provided in this course will help you keep yourself and your workers safe when dealing with hazardous chemicals.


Lockout and Tagout (LOTO)


This course describes the process for lockout and tagging in the workplace. LOTO is a crucial safety strategy used to protect workers from being harmed by hazardous energy. Serious or fatal accidents can occur when people assume that machinery is de-energized or made harmless when it is not! Lockout and tagging ensure that hazardous energy sources are under the control of each worker.


Health and Safety at Work II


The Health & Safety at Work II course explains your rights and responsibilities on the job and tells you what Ontario’s Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA) expects from your employer, your supervisor, and you. It outlines what you need to know and understand to be safe at work today and every day. Preventing injuries and illnesses at work starts here, with the things you learn in this course.


WHMIS 2015


This course provides an overview of the Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS 2015) by examining its main components, classification, and communication. WHMIS 2015 is a comprehensive system for providing health and safety information on hazardous products intended for use, handling, or storage in Canadian workplaces. It ensures that everyone is informed and trained in handling hazardous products in their workplace.
