The Basics of Supervising Training Program will help prepare supervisors to perform their health and safety duties competently. However, it is the responsibility of the employer to validate the competency of the supervisor in health and safety. Additional training in workplace-specific hazards and the regulations that apply to those hazards may be required, and strongly recommended.
