Construction is a unique, dynamic industry characterized by workplaces and workforces that change constantly. Through the course of a project, ten or more employers may be involved with many different trades on site. These multi-trade workplaces are what set the construction industry apart from all others. As injuries and fatalities continue to occur year after year, health and safety should remain everyone’s top priority.

This eLearning program provides general information on hazards and hazard recognition in the construction industry with a focus on occupational health and legal implications of health and safety. Participants will learn how to prevent injuries, illnesses and fatalities as well as how to protect themselves on construction jobsites.

NOTE: This eLearning program will not be accepted under the Ontario-Quebec Mobility Agreement. For those wanting to work in Quebec under this Agreement, the in-class ELC course is required. 

This is an awareness program only and is not intended to certify participants for work in any construction setting requiring certification. Job-specific training must also be conducted by the employer for every construction worker.
