Under section 8(5) of the OHSA, it is required that appointed supervisors be competent. Properly training supervisors is part of meeting this requirement. Comprised of 5 modules, Supervisor Competency offers a perspective on the competencies that supervisors require in order to achieve superior workplace management. Superior workplace management results in greater health and safety within the operation and a better understanding of social responsibility in the workplace. The Supervisor Competency training program outlines the activities, knowledge and skills that are expected to enhance a supervisor’s performance. By providing examples, the course encourages continuous improvement and strives to make a positive difference in supervisory outcomes in today’s workplaces. Upon completion of the 5 modules of the program, supervisors will be issued a competency certificate.
