Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act

Are you providing “accessible service” to persons with disabilities? Under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) you must comply with the new standards. Organizations can be penalized if they are found guilty of an offense under this Act. A fine of up to $100,000 per day to your organization plus $50,000 to each Director if found liable on conviction. The AODA enforces a number of standards through inspections, compliance orders and administrative penalties.

The new Accessibility Standard for Customer Service came into effect across Ontario on January 1, 2012. If you have any employees, you will be required to establish policies, practices and procedures on providing goods or services to people with disabilities.

You will also be asked to train your employees on:

• how to communicate with people with various types of disabilities;

• how to interact with people with disabilities who use assistive devices or require the assistance of a guide dog, other service animal or a support person;

• how to use equipment or devices available at your premises, that may help people with disabilities access your services, such as TTY telephones, elevators, lifts, accessible interactive kiosks or other technology;

• what to do if a person with a disability is having difficulty accessing your services;

• protocol to take if service normally available to the disabled is temporarily not available

Upon completion of the theory portion of the program, a hands-on practical evaluation is required to complete the certification.

Accident Investigation

An accident can be defined as a sudden, unplanned event that causes or could have caused harm to a person, environment, or property. Accidents can happen in any workplace, at any time. Failure to properly investigate an accident and determine its root cause can be costly.

A proper investigation helps to measure the effectiveness of your company’s health and safety program, reveal hazards that were not identified during workplace inspections, examine actual events, and reveal potential trends. Our course is designed to provide managers, supervisors, and health and safety representatives with the information necessary to carry out their investigative duties effectively.

By the end of this course, participants will be able to:

• Explain the investigation process

• Recognize the causes of accidents

• Identify the classification of causes

• Recognize prevention techniques

• Perform an investigation

All employees who may be required to use fire extinguishers should receive training. Training should cover: extinguisher locations; classes of fire most likely to break out in your workplace and the proper extinguishers to use and markings on extinguishers.

Heat Stress

Heat stress occurs when our bodies are overheated and our internal “cooling system” cannot cool us down fast enough or properly. When our bodies fail to cool us down in intense heat, the effects can be a serious illness and even death. Employees who work outside a lot and in intense temperatures need to complete heat stress training to learn how they can protect themselves against overheating and prevent heat stress symptoms that can cause sickness and fatality.

Heat stress requires immediate medical attention. Heat cramps are a symptom of heat stress and occur when fluid is lost and salt accumulates in muscle cells. Heat rash and heat fatigue are other serious conditions of heat stress.

The OHSA heat stress course from MTS can protect your workplace from heat-related hazards and reduce your risk of being fined.

Transportation of Dangerous Goods

A person who handles, offers for transport or transports dangerous goods, or who directly supervises another person engaged in these activities, must have a training certificate in Transportation and Handling of Dangerous Goods (TDG). On August 14, 2001 the federal Transportation of Dangerous Goods (TDG) Regulations were published in the Canada Gazette, Part II. These regulations came into force on August 15, 2002. The purpose of this legislation is to promote safety in handling, offering for transport and transporting of dangerous goods.

A training certificate is valid for three years under TDG Regulations and two years under IATA Regulations, after which the individual must undergo re-certification.
A trained person will be issued a clear language training certificate that they must carry whenever handling dangerous goods. This certificate must be provided to an inspector immediately upon request.

TDG is composed of a number of essential components that work together to ensure safe transportation of hazardous materials. Our course simplifies and organizes this information to ensure that our students receive in-depth training that is clear to understand.


All workers in Canada who are working with or around hazardous materials are required by law to have WHMIS 2015 (Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System) training. MTS provides a comprehensive WHMIS Certification Course that has been developed in accordance with the Government of Canada’s 2015 Hazardous Products Act for the training of anyone who manufactures, works with or is ‘in proximity to’ hazardous materials in the workplace. Workers will learn all aspects of the WHMIS 2015 system and be able help keep a safe workplace for themselves and those around them.

This course replaces the previous 1988 WHMIS course and includes changes related to the international standard GHS (Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals).

Working at Heights Training

Working at heights (WAH) training is mandatory for workers who may use a method of fall protection to protect themselves from a fall hazard. Employers must ensure that their workers are provided with working at heights training that has been approved by the Prevention Office of the Ministry of Labour, Training, and Skills Development (MLTSD). A WAH refresher course must be taken every three years to maintain this training.

MTS was one of the first WAH training providers to be approved by the MLTSD. We offer the following courses:

• Working at Heights—Fundamentals of Fall Prevention (available in multiple languages)

• Working at Heights Refresher

• Working at Heights Instructor Workshop

In addition, employers must ensure that workers are given site-specific training and proper oral and written instructions. This includes making them aware of fall hazards at the project and providing instruction on the particular equipment they will be using.

To meet this requirement, employers should ensure that the site supervisor conducts a hazard assessment or job safety analysis (JSA) of the jobsite and develops a fall protection work plan. The supervisor should review the results of the assessment and the requirements of the fall protection work plan with workers on the site.

If workers use a fall arrest system, employers must develop procedures for rescuing a suspended worker. They can also put up posters and warning signs around the worksite and distribute stickers to workers to remind them about fall hazards on site.

Workplace Inspection

Workshop topics include; Legal requirements for workplace inspections as specified in the legislation, role of worker and management representatives, preparing for an inspection, previous inspection reports, accident/incident reports, first aid log, looking in an effective manner, role of the Joint Health and Safety Committee, supervisors, and managers. The participants will conduct an actual workplace inspection of your workplace. This will meet your obligation for a monthly inspection.

Workplace Violence & Harassment

Workplace violence and harassment can have devastating consequences for both workers and the work environment. It can affect workplace communication, production, morale, and the general sense of personal well-being.

The Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA) requires employers to develop, implement and maintain policies and programs regarding workplace violence and harassment (WVH). This course was developed to give participants more than just knowledge about the law; it will also give attendees a better understanding of the different aspects involved with how to effectively manage a Workplace Violence and Harassment Policy and Program. Additionally, it will give participants detailed instruction on how to review and update their program to meet the new legal requirements of Bill 132.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this course, participants will be able to:
• Identify new requirements based on Bill 132

• Discuss applicable definitions

• Identify factors that contribute to violence and harassment

• Identify sources of violence and harassment

• Break down the definition of sexual harassment

• Discuss factors that define sexual harassment

• Identify workplace violence and harassment legislative requirements
