About the course

Entering the workforce for the first time can be intimidating, and statistics show that more than half of workplace accidents involve young or new workers during their first six months on the job.

Effective training is key to helping workers understand workplace safety and is the best way to prevent accidents. Designed specifically for young or new workers, the online Foundations of Workplace Safety course will help you enter the workplace with knowledge and confidence. This course also provides a great refresher for anyone already working in the tourism and hospitality industry.

In addition to learning about worker’s and employer’s rights and responsibilities, as well as understanding common workplace hazards, the course also covers the basics of WHMIS.

Learning Outcomes/Topics

  • What could go wrong?
  • Workplace safety rules
  • What’s with WHMIS?

The course is self-paced and self-directed. It will take approximately three hours to work through the content, and students will receive a certificate once they have successfully completed the course, final exam and course evaluation. This course counts towards credits in the BC high school Workforce Training Certificates 12 program.
