Passport to Safety
There are some important changes to Passport to Safety that you should be aware of. As of June 30, 2015, Parachute will no longer offer the Passport to Safety program in Ontario schools. Passport to Safety access codes previously distributed to students will remain active until this date.
Young worker safety remains a high priority for everyone. The Ontario Ministry of Labour provides occupational health and safety awareness training programs for workers and supervisors to help employers comply with the training requirements under Ontario's Occupational Health and Safety Act. To learn more about these training requirements and the ministry's suite of free resources, please visit Ontario.ca/LearnToWorkSafe. Additional resources for young workers can be found at Ontario.ca/YoungWorkers. Or you can call the ministry’s health and safety contact centre at 1-877-202-0008.
If you have questions related to Passport to Safety, please contact Parachute at 647-776-5100 for more information.
Parachute will continue to focus on the safety of young workers and looks forward to collaborating with the Ontario Ministry of Labour on new and innovative ways to keep Ontario’s young workers safe.
About Passport to Safety
Passport to Safety is an online national safety test, certification and transcript program for workers. Those who complete a test receive a ‘certificate’ or ‘passport’ which acknowledges and verifies the student’s basic level of workplace health and safety knowledge. All of our online tests provide a base for becoming smarter and safer workers. It is a catalyst for change intended to prevent needless workplace injuries and preventable deaths and promote a culture change driven by knowledge and awareness through youth and workers of all ages. Passport to Safety online tests can be accessed by purchasing individually online without a membership.
Currently we offer the following online tests:
- Passport to Safety Challenge for Teens (geared for those in the high school curriculum)
- Passport to Safety 101 Test (picture-oriented, with very basic language used)
- Passport to Safety Test (geared for those 20+)
- Passport to Safety Supervisor Assessment (available to employer members only)
- Passport to Safety for Supervisors (Ontario and Canada version)
- Passport to Farm Safety
To become a member of Passport To Safety, students must register. We also offer Passport to Safety Employer Memberships which are cost-effective with added member benefits. For more details, visit Passport to Safety.
