Supervisor Responsibilities

Supervisors oversee the work of others and can directly affect how work is performed. As such, both provincial and federal occupational health and safety legislation requires employers to train supervisors and ensure that they are familiar with the regulations that apply to the work they manage. When supervisors fail to meet their health and safety obligations, the consequences can be serious, ranging from worker injury and illness to orders and fines against the employer.

New and existing Supervisors will benefit from this course. Learning modules incorporate WorkSafeBC regulatory requirements and are relevant to all BC industries.
