14 The SG Program Elements List (pages 22–50) outlines the minimum requirements. We encourage firms when and if possible to exceed the minimum requirements by incorporating best practices and improving workplace safety culture. Each Element includes Resources to assist in the development of the standards. They are for reference only. The Elements list will be used in the Safety Group Validation Audit Process. Firms will be measured against the specified criteria. Element Criteria 14

15 15

16 Step 3 Training (pg. 14 of Employers Guide) Training means that management, supervisors and workers ALL attain the knowledge and skills appropriate for their jobs. For each Safety Groups element, you must determine who needs what knowledge and skills, and how they will be developed (in a classroom, on the job, from job shadowing, etc.). To meet Safety Groups Program requirements, training must be completed, or verified, within each program year (January 1 to December 31). What training should be done?  Training on your standards for each element must be provided to those who have responsibility and accountability for knowing and using the information. For example, orientation training is important for everyone when they are first hired, when they change locations or jobs, or after a long absence from the workplace. Training or retraining in safe work procedures for each element must be ongoing.

18 Complete/update workplace self assessment Complete year-end achievement report:  Have documentation available  Firms in Years 2 – 5, complete maintenance report for elements of previous years Year-End Documentation 18
