Bill 18, A Stronger Workplace for a Stronger Economy, was passed by the Ontario Government on November 6, 2014. The Bill expands the definition of a worker, to include unpaid Co-op students and other unpaid learners. This expanded definition gives students protection under the Occupation Health and Safety Act, and gives students the right to know such as workplace hazards and the right to refuse unsafe work.

GBHS needs to ensure Health and Safety and violence prevention training for students. The following online learning modules as well as unit specific training provides students with the information to fulfill these requirements.

To access the on-line modules go to the following link:

You will receive a “Proof of Completion” certificate once you complete the training. You must save and/or print the certificate before exiting the module. The Ministry of Labour will not store your certificate, or keep a record of training. Please print off the certificate of completion and upload it with your package.

**Please note: if you have completed this module for the purpose of previous placements, we will accept a copy of the certificate.
