The Haliburton Highlands Chamber of Commerce is offering online training programs to their membership and the wider community that promote safe, healthy workplaces.
Occupational health and safety training including general WHMIS, personal protective equipment awareness, fire safety and COVID-19 safety are available. Training on creating a respectful, inclusive workplace includes LGBT+ diversity and inclusion for workplaces, diversity and inclusion for volunteer organizations, Indigenous culture training, and unconscious bias in the workplace.
Chamber members get 25 per cent off the cost of the programs, which the chamber says are affordably priced. Participants receive a chamber-branded certificate upon completion of the course. Additional discounts for high volume employers may be available.
“The board recognized this as a need in our community, based on current events,” Andrea Strano, president of the Haliburton Highlands Chamber of Commerce said.
