Basics of Workplace Health and Safety

Health and Safety Essentials for Small Business

Course Description

During the startup phase, entrepreneurs devote countless hours to honing their business plan, securing their financials and all the other tasks needed to get a business off the ground. Unfortunately, health and safety often goes neglected, with many business owners commencing operation without a health and safety plan.

Join Sat Combow, WorkSafeBC, and discover your requirements with regards to workplace health and safety; from an employer’s rights and responsibilities, to a worker’s right to refuse unsafe work. Creating a health and safety plan isn’t just common sense, it’s also good for business. Effective internal responsibility systems will protect and improve the physical and mental health of workers, while reducing injury rates and increasing staff engagement. Employers with these programs in place benefit from higher productivity, lower absenteeism, and improved customer service.

What Will I Learn?

  • Workplace health and safety requirements

  • Employer and employee roles defined

  • Benefits of having a health and safety plan
