Barrie Construction Association (BCA) is set to hold a course on how to be a Supervisor in Construction on September 18 at the association’s home office.
The course, discounted for BCA members, aims to teach leaders on the job site about the rules and behaviours required to run a job site. Some topics include interpretation and implementation of the OHSA in order to stay on the right side of the law, as well as the particulars of work stoppage and work refusal on the job site.
Other topics include the definition of a competent person, general duties of contractors, employers, supervisors, and employees, the ramifications for non-compliance with OHSA regulations, how to perform risk assessments, job planning, accident reporting, and workplace inspection requirements.
The course is one of many BCA’s offerings, which range from health and safety law to Microsoft Excel for construction, in addition to a LunchBox workshop on strategic planning in business.
The supervisor course is presented by Industrial Safety Trainers, an Ontario Ministry of Labour authorized training provider.
