WSPS offers Landscape Safety Awareness eCourse
WSPS has developed a solution to support Ontario's landscapers as they embark on the new season ahead of them. The Landscape Safety Awareness eCourse takes approximately 1 hour to complete. It will help participants learn how to work safely in the Landscape Industry; familiarizing them with common hazards in the workplace. Please note that this solution does not meet the MLTSD's requirement for mandatory health and safety awareness training. We recommend that you first complete MLTSD mandatory training before taking this course.
