Filing the return out online is quick and easy, and built-in calculations, error checking, and simple navigation makes the process easier than ever.

 New Auditor Training prerequisites for 2018

COR-holders will see changes to Auditor Training prerequisites in 2018.  Auditor candidates must complete 3 half-day classroom seminars, 6 short online training sessions, and an online H&S Program Building exam before taking the 3-day Auditor Training course.  These changes are designed to better prepare auditor candidates for the task of conducting an effective health and safety audit.   

Certified Auditors seeking re-certification by the AHSA must complete the classroom seminar on Hazard Identification & Assessment, an online Site-Specific Hazard Assessment session, and an Auditor Refresher covering the new audit tool before January 1, 2019.  For those who would like a more thorough review of the new audit tool and changes to audit processes, completing the 3-day Auditor Training instead of the 1-day refresher is highly recommended.




 New 2018 Training

The schedule is posted on the website and is now open for registrations. Hosting opportunities are available for training seminars. If your property is interested in hosting please contact Erica at .
