NORCAT's Workplace Violence and Harassment program explains workplace violence and harassment as defined under the Occupational Health and Safety Act, discusses the responsibilities of supervisors and employers, and lists the worker's rights under that Act.
Workplace accidents are a common occurrence and almost all can be prevented. NORCAT's Office Safety Awareness course will inform you of safe work practices, teach you how to recognize potentially dangerous situations in the workplace and how to react in a responsible manner .
The Outdoor Safety Awareness program is aimed at young workers who will primarily be performing manual labour or outdoor work. The program highlights rules of conduct, personal protective equipment, personal hygiene, and safe work practices.
Young workers are also introduced to the safe practices for lifting heavy objects, painting and staining, grooming landscapes, operating power tools, using gas-powered equipment, working with ladders, confined space awareness, handling hazardous materials, and fueling machinery.
