The Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS) has developed a new e-course that focuses on safety issues and travel incidents that may arise when travelling for work purposes.
The Travel Safety for Canadian Businesses e-course, will provide participants with an introduction to duty of care requirements, basic threat and risk analysis steps, components of a travel risk management program, solutions to increase safety for travelers and how to deal with safety incidents.
Topics will include: duty of care requirements and Canadian legislation; duty of care and risk analysis; organizational and individual preparation and how to deal with an incident and post-incident support.
Travel Safety for Canadian Businesses e-course was developed in collaboration with Integrated Human Risk Solutions (iHRS). All e-courses by CCOHS are available in English and French. They are developed by experts in the field and reviewed by labour, employer and government representatives. There are quizzes throughout and a certificate of completion is issued upon passing the exam. Case studies, quizzes, and an "ask a question" option are also featured.
