Workers in supervisory positions play an important role in keeping workplaces safe. At the forefront of workplace safety, companies rely on supervisors to understand and enforce workplace safety procedures. The direction they provide workers must be accurate and consistent, so everyone understands their role in maintaining a safe workplace. The three-day Occupational Health and Safety course familiarizes participants with safety legislation, the Northwest Territories and Nunavut Safety Acts and General Safety Regulations, and industry best practices. The Workers' Safety and Compensation Commission invites supervisors of all levels to attend this course. There is no registration fee. Register online at www.wscc.nt.ca. WSCC partners, The Northern Safety Association and Arctic Response, also offer valuable courses to help keep NWT workplaces safe.
