Student Occupational Health and Safety Hazard Assessment: Toolkit for Teachers Supervising Work-Oriented Training Path Practicums


Like all workers, students enrolled in the Work-Oriented Training Path (WOTP) program are exposed, during their practicums, to occupational risks that may endanger their health and safety. Despite the many different work contexts they have to deal with, teachers are responsible for ensuring that each student is placed in an appropriate practicum situation in terms of occupational health and safety (OHS). This kit is designed to equip teachers to safeguard their students’ occupational health and safety.  It contains:

  1. 14 information sheets on the main OHS risks
  2. Tips on how to observe the work and recognize risky situations
  3. A questionnaire to be used to raise the OHS issue with employers
  4. A list of OHS resources for developing their knowledge of OHS
