Safety in the workplace is priority number one, and Algonquin College’s Corporate Training Department offers a variety of courses, both in class and on-line, to support companies and organizations in meeting their obligations to provide a safe workplace.
The College has partnered with NORCAT (Northern Centre for Advanced Technology) to offer a series of on-line courses that offer certifications. These certification courses start at under $25 per employee and include:
- WHMIS (Workplace Hazardous Materials Inventory System)
- Fall Protection Awareness
- Young Workers’ Safety
- Confined Space Awareness
- Confined Space Entry
- General Safety Awareness
- Managing Health and Safety
- Health and Safety for Workers
- Customer Service Excellence
- Safe Work Practices
- Asbestos Awareness
- Chemical Hazards
If your employees require a more comprehensive safety course we can also provide this through traditional classroom learning. Most employers now require employees to have a minimum of WHMIS training. This includes employers who are hiring summer students. The NORCAT on-line safety training is accessible and cost effective for employers.
