Programs have two options for compliance with the required training:
- EOHHS eLearning: In response to the requirements of the Human Service Workers Safety Regulations, EOHHS has developed an e-Learning designed to raise awareness, introduce risk assessment techniques, present de-escalation strategies, offer resources for additional training and highlight pertinent laws and regulations.
The EOHHS eLearning provides a flexible and cost-effective training for providers to satisfy the minimal regulation requirements. The training is accessible through our online portal, PACE, and takes approximately 30 minutes to complete.
For more information, please go to the EOHHS Training page.
- Program-specific Training Module: Providers may choose to provide their own training if they certify their training covers the minimum EOHHS required training elements and that all employees have received training.
For more information, please go to the Alternative Safety Training page.
