Construction supervisors often play a key role in ensuring human resource regulations, policies and practices are applied fairly and consistently on the work site. To do so, supervisors need to interpret and apply human resource management policies and practices as defined by the company and/or by the industry.

The Human Resource Practices module is intended to help you gain a clear understanding of your roles and responsibilities related to the application of human resource policies and legislation. You will discuss human resource related legislation such as employment standards and workplace health and safety. You will also look at common policy areas such as employee selection, training and development, harassment, substance abuse, attendance policies and your responsibilities for applying these policies on the worksite.
