Essential Skills Training: The Foundation of Workplace Health & Safety - Case Study [Multiple Videos] (2012)

Using a combination of text and short videos, this resource shows how Essential Skills training helped to improve health and safety performance at two Canadian companies.

The training is part of Essential Skills through Safety and Health (ESSH), a two-year project initiated by Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters (CME) and funded by Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC) through the Office of Literacy and Essential Skills (OLES).

The project focused on workers who do not have English or French as their first language or who have trouble reading and writing in one of those languages. Its mandate was to embed Essential Skills into occupational health and safety training.

This resource is part of a series of case studies developed by ABC Life Literacy Canada to draw attention to successful workplace education programs across Canada.
