WHMIS, October 8, 2019 • 9am - 11am

WHMIS symbols, labels, and MSDS are changing. WHMIS 2015 (GHS) comes into full force in 2018; we train both 1988 and 2015 systems in this transition stage as both systems could be encountered in the workplace.

Ensure you know the risks of materials you work with and ways to protect yourself. Live, hands-on exercises-no videos.

Elevated Work Platform, October 17, 2019 • 9am - 3pm

Become certified to operate and rent man lifts (boom & scissor lifts)

Competent operators must know, not only how to operate the particular class of Elevated Work Platforms to which they will be operating, but also be aware of the hazards associated; they must be able to operate the equipment in a manner that protects both their own safety and the safety of others in the workplace.

Working at Heights, October 29, 2019 • 9am - 5pm

As of April 1, 2015, employers must ensure that certain workers complete a working at heights training program that has been approved by the Chief Prevention Officer and delivered by an approved training provider before they can work at heights.

The training requirement is for workers on construction projects who use any of the following methods of fall protection: travel restraint systems, fall restricting systems, fall arrest systems, safety nets and work belts or safety belts.

Safe Food Handling, November 5, 2019 • 9am - 5pm

“Make sure you are compliant with new legislation effective July 1”

Keeping food safe also means keeping food fresh. When you handle food properly it doesn’t need to cost you more money, in fact, it saves you money. A proper food safety training and certification plan will ensure that you reduce waste costs and lower utility costs.

There is, of course, the most important reason – the safety of your staff and customers.

Our TrainCan Certified Instructor will take you through the eight-hour Basics.FST Course.
