Student Worker Health & Safety Training

All students who work for the college are required to attend a Student Worker Health and Safety Session. These sessions are designed to enhance students’ awareness of health and safety in the Humber workplace and to inform them about their rights and responsibilities as an employee.  

Key topics covered in the session include:

  • duties of the various workplace parties under the Occupational Health and Safety Act
  • worker rights under the Occupational Health and Safety Act including:
    • the right to participate
    • the right to know
    • the right to refuse unsafe work
  • Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) overview
  • health and safety programs specific to Humber 
  • what to do in the event of an injury
  • emergency procedures
  • workplace harassment and violence prevention

This training is mandatory for all students who work for Humber and the University of Guelph-Humber (e.g. Work Study Students). Supervisors are responsible for ensuring that all students working for them attend a health and safety awareness session. Health and Safety Services will advise supervisors of upcoming sessions via email. Records of training are kept on file and a “Certificate of Participation” is issued to each student after they have attended a session.
