Committee Training to
Ensure a Safe Working
Much like the Joint Health & Safety Committee certification for
Ontario, The Canadian Centre for Occupational Health & Safety
has released guidelines for safety committees in each province.
In many provinces and territories, it’s not a law yet. However, we see it becoming one in the near future.
In the meantime, it’s great training to have in the workplace to
ensure a safer environment for all workers.

fisheries and Alberta oil sands to Ontario offices and Quebec
hydro plants, our provincial safety committee training

A Safe Workplace Helps Your Bottom Line
Workplace injuries can be financially devastating for a company. In 2017, an average workplace injury that required medical attention would cost a Canadian business $40,051. A fatal accident that resulted in prosecution would cost an average of $275,000 plus an average of $150,000 in legal fees. Indirect costs from repairing property and equipment damage, training replacement workers, damages to corporate reputation, loss of productivity and corrective actions to avoid future incidents would cost an average of $200,000. Depending on your business’s profit margins, it could take millions of dollars in revenue to recover from the costs of a workplace accident.
