This Canada Safety Council program is recognized as a requirement for many companies in order to comply with current labour and training legislation. The use of this program can have a direct impact on reducing operating costs and employee time-loss. The key elements of this program are the importance of driver attitude, avoiding collisions, alcohol and drugs as well as principles and foundations. Upon successful completion participants will qualify for a 3 point demerit reduction.
In this one-day course, students will learn to recognize and provide interventions for life-threatening emergencies until medical aid arrives. Topics include: CPR and choking for adults, shock and unconsciousness, severe bleeding, head & spinal injuries, major medical conditions, and AED training and certification.
This two-day course covers all the skills in Emergency First Aid plus first aid for other injuries and illnesses including head and spinal injuries, fractures of the upper and lower limbs. This course includes Level C CPR training and certification (Adult, Child, Infant, and 2-rescuer resuscitation) and AED training and certification.
This 1-day recertification is a challenge of the Standard First Aid course content and requires the student to demonstrate essential skills as well as pass the theoretical exam. This challenge is open to those who have a current Standard First Aid certificate from an Alberta OH&S approved program — with Level A or C CPR and with or without AED. If the certificate is from out-of-province then a full course must be taken.
The recertification is intended for those who use their First Aid skills on a regular basis and are able to demonstrate their competency in all required skill areas. Unsuccessful candidates will be required to take a full course at their cost; there are no refunds or re-tests.
This two-day course is designed for professional child care workers, but great for parents and all caregivers. This course includes emergency life saving skills and first aid topics with a focus on children. The course includes Level C CPR (adult, infant, child and 2-rescuer resuscitation) and AED. Min. age: 16 years
Upon successful completion of the Gas Testing course participants will be able to demonstrate an understanding of explosive mixtures and the ability to select the appropriate test equipment for the job/type of gas. Each participant will have a clear understanding of the operation and limitations of the equipment. The Nitrogen tag will cover where nitrogen is found, how it is used and how to recognize it. Also covered are the health hazards of nitrogen and how to reduce its risks.

OH&S and the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) fit-testing requirements specify that all respirators that rely on a mask-to-face seal need to be checked with either quantitative (QNFT) or qualitative (QLFT) methods to determine whether the mask provides an acceptable fit to a wearer. This includes all types of air purifying, air-supplied, positive pressure, powered air-purifying respirators, and SCBA.
Qualitative Mask-Fit Testing is a pass/fail method of testing by determining whether participants can detect an odour while wearing a mask. A bitter or sweet odour is applied near the mask and if the participant cannot detect the odour, the test is considered a pass.
Quantitative (QNFT) fit testing where measurements are taken doing a series of tasks while wearing a mask and connected to a portacount machine.
This course is intended for all workers in the petroleum industry who could be exposed to hydrogen sulphide (H2S). The primary focus is to help people work safely in and around H2S environments. This course covers the physical properties and health hazards of H2S, how to protect oneself and basic rescue techniques. Each participant is required to operate a self-contained breathing apparatus and perform rescue lift and drag exercises.
Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) 2015 /Transportation of Dangerous Goods (TDG) | $75
WHMIS 2015 – The course familiarizes workers with the system used across Canada to provide safety information about hazardous products in their workplaces. Participants will learn about the WHMIS symbols and their meaning, the labels on products, and material safety data sheets (SDSs). The course also includes valuable practical advice, so you will know basic health and safety measures to protect yourself and prevent workplace injuries and illnesses.
In Canada, federal and provincial and territorial legislation governs the transportation of dangerous goods. Anyone who handles, offers for transport or transports dangerous goods is legally required to have training in the transportation of dangerous goods.
Once you have completed this course, you will be better informed about the importance of complying with the regulations for the transportation of dangerous goods.
Although goods can be transported by road, rail, air and water, this course only covers regulations for ground transportation of dangerous goods. There are nine classes of dangerous goods and at the end of this course, you will be qualified to handle all of them except Classes 1, 6.2 and 7 as handling these classes requires additional training.
You should ask your supervisor or employer about special equipment, site specific or job specific training for the transportation of dangerous goods.
Once you have completed the course, you will take the final test. You must achieve at least 80% to receive a certificate of completion. Don’t worry – if you don’t pass the first time, you can keep trying until you do.
Full Day – Level II
Ground Disturbance – Level I ®
This two-hour program is designed to ensure personnel are aware of hazards and the necessary items required to ensure safety. Participants are always under the direct guidance of a Level II® certified Ground Disturbance Supervisor who has Level II® Certification. This program was designed to meet the regulatory requirements for companies with a massive, fully supervised labour base. Emphasis is placed on recognizing hazards, and knowing when to stop work and inform the supervisor for further assessment. Participants are able to explain what a ground disturbance is, when and why common hits occur, define what a Code of Practice is and why there is the need for one. Other topics include undertaking a ground disturbance, and distances involved when searching for an underground facility. Participants are able to illustrate the minimum sources for searching for an underground facility, and know how to use permits and pre-job meetings to their full advantage.This course is assessed to the ABCGA 101 Ground Disturbance Standard.
Ground Disturbance – Level II ®
Level II® is designed for any party that is supervising a ground disturbance, independently performing a ground disturbance, or issuing and receiving ground disturbance permits. The program ensures that Level II® personnel are familiar with, and fully understand, all the regulations and variances involved when a ground disturbance takes place. The course is presented in a logical sequence – from the pre-planning stage to the actual dig – and highlights the “‘musts” compared to the “shoulds”. Level II® is the standardized program recognized by industry regulators. Participants learn how to clarify sources when searching for underground facilities, provide notification to the facility owner and receive owner notification. Participants gain an understanding of the necessary approvals/crossing agreements and regulations necessary before creating a ground disturbance. They learn to create a plot plan/site drawing, gain an understanding of line locating and learn about types of exposure. Participants will also learn how to do a back-fill inspection, as well as how to use permits and conduct pre-job meetings. Emergency response plans and what to do in case an underground facility is contacted are also covered.
Testing is done by appointment only. On site Available
Audiometric testing is an evaluation of a person’s ability to hear. In order to understand whether a worker’s hearing is being impaired as a result of job related activities, we recommend performing baseline testing prior to employment, followed by periodic testing every 12 months. Our Audiometric Technicians have been certified through THM Audiology as well as Macewan University.
This course is designed for the individual worker and is offered through an eLearning, high media based, computer system. The training is done individually and takes, on average, 6-7 hours to complete. The participant is instructed on various health & safety topics and tested for 100% mastery of content. This program gives the individual and employer the flexibility of training when and where it is most convenient.
