Safety E-Learning That's E-sy and E-ffective!

Workplaces have come to rely on the credible, affordable safety information
resources provided by the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety
(CCOHS). Fuelled by customer demand, CCOHS recently launched several new
e-learning courses to help Canadians work smarter and safer.

These online courses allow employees to enroll via the Internet and work at
their own pace, at their own convenience. Managers can track employees'
progress, and be assured that all employees will receive consistent information
and training. The relatively low cost of e-learning allows employers to save
the money that, in traditional off-site training situations, would be spent on
airfare and hotels, not to mention the lost productivity related to travel time.

The courses, available in English and French, include voice-overs, case
studies, checklists and other examples to illustrate concepts. Quizzes
throughout, and an exam at the end of each course measure learning progress.

Courses are available on:


  • Health and Safety Committees
  • Health and Safety for Managers and Supervisors in the Canadian Federal
    Jurisdiction 
  • Health and Safety Training for Managers and Supervisors
  • Ladder Safety
  • Office Ergonomics
  • Office Health and Safety
  • WHMIS for Managers/Supervisors
  • WHMIS for Workers
  • Electrical Hazards Coming Soon! 
  • Personal Protective Equipment: The Basics Coming Soon!
