CCOHS Course Focuses on New Worker Health, Safety

The Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS) announced in a recent news release that it has developed a new e-course, titled "Orientation on Health and Safety for New Workers," that provides a general introduction to workplace health and safety to new workers.

According to SAFE Work Manitoba, new workers have five to seven times the risk of injury in the first four weeks of a new job. CCOHS said it has developed the e-course to help equip new workers with the information and guidance they need, such as their health and safety responsibilities, legislation, job related hazards, and more.

"Creating a health and safety orientation program will help employers and their employees understand and take action in building and maintaining a safer workplace, taking the special needs of new workers into consideration," said Dr. P.K. Abeytunga, CCOHS vice president and director general.

All e-courses by CCOHS are available in English and French. For more information about the courses, click here.
