is offering OAA members access to its workplace sexual harassment training at a discounted rate of $49 per person.
Self-report one ConEd hour and carry out mandatory workplace training all in one sitting! Since 2016, training in workplace sexual harassment has been mandatory for any sized business under the Ontario Health and Safety Act.
In “Eliminating Sexual Harassment: It's Everyone's Business,” sexual harassment in the workplace is explored through animated stories of staff and managers of a hypothetical organization (“Future Generation”). Comprising four 10-minute animated episodes and interactive exercises, the course is delivered online and can be completed via smartphones, tablets or computers. Progress is tracked and you will receive a certification confirming completion.
In 2017, the OAA Safe Work Places Committee developed Supporting Safe Work Places: A Guide for Members of the Ontario Association of Architects
, which provides direction to all members regarding their legal rights and responsibilities in maintaining and working in a safe workplace, free from harassment and violence. Intended for employers and employees alike, the guide is available under Policies
on the “Resources for Architects and Practices” section of the OAA Website. Please take time to review this important information and ensure you are in compliance with the law.
