OHS Education

OHS Education

When a worker receives proper training, they are able to perform their work safely.

An OHS Education program identifies training needs within an organization. From there, employers design and develop a program that meets legislative requirements and reflects best practices in their work environment. 

A strong education program helps employers choose training that reduces the risk from hazards, and properly trains employees to be safe.

Training and Education; What's the Difference?

Training is hands-on instruction of how to do something. Training includes the application of knowledge in practical settings. Training ensures workers gain specific skills and are able to perform certain tasks.

Education raises awareness on a subject. Education focuses on transferring information to increase understanding. Education gives context to why something is done the way it is—or not done.
