Health & Safety 101:
Health and Safety 101 is a free e-course developed by the WSIB of Ontario to provide an overview of the fundamentals of workplace health and safety in a fun and interactive manner. There is no preparation on the part of the teacher, as students simply log on to the site and the program guides them through the instruction. The information presented also helps prepare youth for the Passport to Safety online test (see above). Visit: www.hs101.ca.
