I came across this interesting program while reading “What’s New” from the Ontario Ministry of Labour and Skills Development. The cost of the training is low (~$25), the courses are often 7-8 hours long and this program can be used to subsidize the employees time attending.
Ontario’s Small Business Health and Safety Training Program will reimburse eligible employers for health and safety representative training for a selected employee in an Ontario workplace. The program will cover the course registration cost of $25 for the representative and $150 toward the cost of the representative’s training time, for a total reimbursement of $175.
