on-site then all employees must be trained in WHMIS. Those involved in delivering or moving WHMIS products must also be trained in the Transportation of Dangerous Goods (TDG)

However, Confined Spaces can be very dangerous places unles proper procedures are followed prior to entry.

A full set of Confined Space policies, procedures and entry permits must be completed before safe entry is permitted.

The widespread use of Forklifts and Lift Trucks requires that individuals working with and around these vehicles recognize the hazards associated with them as well as the environment in which they operate.
Lockout - To "Lockout" means to physically neutralize all energies in a piece of equipment before beginning any maintenance or repair work. Lockout is needed because power sources can be turned on by mistake before the work is completed which will result in serious injuries and fatalities. "Tagout" is a companion to Lockout procedures. It means to apply visible tags to identify that the equipment has been locked out properly.
Manager and Supervisor Due Diligence - The Health & Safety of employees has become the personal and legal responsibilities of employers and managers.

Anyone in the chain of command, from the injured employee's supervisor to the owner of the business, must be able to prove that they have done their Due Diligence in their approach to the health & safety of their employees.
Office Ergonomics -Ergonomics is concerned with the overuse and "wear and tear" on the human body which is likely to cause injuries. These injuries continue to be among the most costly work related injuries in industry today. Ergonomics measures and assesses human performance, ensuring the physical and bio-mechanical safety of workers and a means for improving work efficiency and productivity.
