AODA training gives employees the basic knowledge about accessibility, and how it influences people with disabilities. We often think of disabilities as either physical or visible. However, AODA includes all disabilities: physical, visible, and non-visible disabilities, such as learning and mental health disabilities.
In Ontario, the Occupational Health and Safety Act (the Act) states that it’s the employer’s responsibility to develop and enforce a workplace violence and harassment policy. Employers also need to provide training to workers on the contents of the policy. Supervisors will need additional training. They need to be trained on how to follow up on incidents and complaints. Employers or supervisors may be held liable under Ontario’s human rights system if harassment occurs in the workplace. They may also be liable for failing to take proper steps to prevent harassment, such as providing training.
