Canada Safety Training 101
Safety training is essential in the workplace, but not all employment opportunities are implementing proper safety precautions. According to the Institute for Work & Health, “only one in five Canadians reports receiving safety training in their first year of a new job.”
An additional 75 percent to 80 percent of workers do not receive information on how to do their jobs safely, which can increase the likelihood of occupational hazards. Many provinces have health and safety legislations that require employee safety knowledge and training.
