We got so many questions about the training, career path, and job options that we decided to bring in an expert to answer them.

Do Occupational Health & Safety Officers Really Save Lives? Yes...Here’s How

Accidents on job sites and work-related deaths are a major problem in Canada. The official numbers from the Workers’ Compensation Boards of Canada say 1000 people die every year on-the-job.

Every year on April 28th, Canada observes a national day of mourning for workplace tragedies. This day serves to remind us of the pain and suffering caused by jobsite injuries and deaths—to families, loved ones, and entire communities. 

It’s also a stark reminder that many of these accidents are preventable.
