OHS training at the BC Federation of Labour


The BCGEU Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) department is offering additional training through the BC Federation of Labour for government and labour code OHS worker representatives. These training sessions are for specific courses we do not offer through the BCGEU. The one or two day OHS course is a pre-requisite to the BC Federation of Labour OHS training.

Your employer must pay for you to take at least eight hours of annual OHS education, so you must apply for this training through your employer. The cost of this training is $115 per person. Employer OHS representatives are invited to register but will only be accepted if there is space. Maximum registration is 24.

If you have already taken your eight hours of annual training, the OHS department will sponsor you to take this training. Please indicate your need for this sponsorship when you register through your area office.
