Training that is compliant, convenient, consistent, and cost-effective.

Webinar welcoming everyone to distance learning

Distance Learning

This is just a fancy word for learning via webinar. It allows you to avoid the high costs of an on-site trainer.


Dunk loves to train and educate workplaces in an affordable way and distance learning does just that. This is a great option for companies who:

  • Want to host training opportunities, but lack the skills or experience to do the training themselves;

  • Are in remote areas and cannot find sufficient trainers; or

  • Want to avoid the high costs associated with sending groups of workers to classroom-based sessions.

Internet connection is needed to access online training

How do they work?

Our webinars are hosted and facilitated by a Dunk professional who is experienced and knowledgeable on the topic being discussed. Our facilitators are really good at what they do – we welcome questions, share stories, and give you tools which actually make sense for your workplace. It’s far from boring and full of many valuable takeaways.


Learners access our distance learning courses by logging into our Adobe Connect sessions from a computer, either as individuals or as a group. Learners participate in the training and are encouraged to ask questions. A certificate of participation is then provided to all participants and a record of attendance is provided to your business.

Accident/Incident Investigation

It is necessary to examine underlying factors in a chain of events that lead to an accident.

Let us teach you how to effectively perform accident/incident investigations to identify root causes and prevent re-occurrence.

Who Should Attend: Managers/Supervisors

Most organizations need to improve employee productivity in order to grow and improve profitability. True productivity doesn't happen when people are only focusing on the financial or technical issues. The key to return on your employee resource investment is to develop sustainable coaching behaviours to achieve the desired business results. This course will discuss why organizations should coach, what coaching is, what makes coaching different from other forms of mentoring, coaching strategies, and how to be an effective coach.

Regardless of the size of the organization - whether it's a large corporation, a small company, or even a home-based business – everyone requires good communication skills if they want to succeed. This course will help employees learn how to get their messages across in the right way. Material covered includes key components to effective communication, the different types of communication, considerations for electronic communication, barriers to listening, how to use active listening, key components when responding, and conflict resolution.
Diversity and Inclusion

An inclusive work environment, one that is built on the principles of diversity and inclusion, can make or break a company.

Performance Management

Who Should Attend: Managers/Supervisors

Performance management is more than just a performance review or disciplinary action for performance infractions. It is a continuous process used to identify, measure, communicate, develop, coach, and reward employee performance. Applying the fundamentals from this training to your performance management practices will ensure you are setting your employees up for success and providing supporting information for you to make important decisions relating to the overall business success.
RACE: Recognize, Assess, Control and Evaluate Hazard Controls

Who Should Attend: Managers, Supervisors, Health and Safety Reps., Committee Members, Workers

The “recognize, assess and control” method of dealing with hazards is a specialized form of problem-solving. The problem is to anticipate hazards and then take action to prevent injury and illness to people or to control property losses. You may become aware of a hazard in a variety of ways such as voicing a worker's concern, or something noticed during a workplace inspection. It may come to your attention through the Health and Safety Representative or a Joint Health and Safety Committee member, or because of an accident investigation. This module will teach participants to use hazard recognition, assessment, and control principles to deal with all hazards.
Respect in the Workplace

Who Should Attend: Great for all employees

Respect can be defined as consideration for self and of others. Respect in the workplace is important as it leads to better employee morale, increased productivity, and a better working environment. This course will review practices of respect, respect in the workplace, respectful communication, and disrespect in the workplace.
Roles and Responsibilities of Safety Committees/Safety Reps

Who Should Attend: Health and Safety Reps., Committee Members

A Safety Committee is made up of workers and employers working together to identify health and safety problems in the workplace. A Safety Committee plays a pivotal role in keeping the workplace safe and is a requirement under the Occupational Health and Safety Law. This introductory course introduces committee members to their duties and responsibilities, details regarding the roles and functions of the committee, requirements for meetings, as well as other important steps in establishing an effective committee.
Running An Effective Safety Committee

Who Should Attend: Committee Members (both management and worker reps.)

Safety Committees play a pivotal role in keeping the workplace safe. In a world of competing priorities, it can be difficult to effectively manage a committee and keep on task. This module offers tips and resources to effectively run a safety committee meeting and hold workers and managers accountable for recommended corrective actions. In addition, participants will gain an understanding of all the requirements of a safety committee including duties and responsibilities, meeting frequency, agendas, minutes and making recommendations.
Supervisor Competency

Who Should Attend: Supervisors/Managers, Employers, and any worker in a supervisory role

It is required, and best practice, that appointed supervisors be competent. Properly training supervisors is part of meeting this requirement. Our Supervisor Competency training offers a unique perspective on the competencies that supervisors require to achieve superior workplace management. Superior workplace management results in greater health and safety within the operation and a better understanding of social responsibility in the workplace. The Supervisor Competency training program outlines the activities, knowledge and skills that are expected to enhance a supervisor’s performance. By providing examples, our course encourages continuous improvement and strives to make a positive difference in supervisory outcomes in today’s workplaces.
Worker Awareness

Who Should Attend: All workers

Our Worker Awareness training is designed to provide all workers with the basics of health and safety, as it is applied to the workplace. On working through this training program, learners will better understand their obligations and their role in health and safety within the workplace.
Workplace Inspections

Who Should Attend: Managers/Supervisors, Committee Members, Health and Safety Reps.

An inspection is a planned walk-through of a workplace or worksite designed to help the workplace meet compliance with the law, and more importantly, allow for the identification and control of any factors that can cause injury or illness. Routine workplace inspections are therefore a critical component of a good accident, occupational disease, and fire prevention program.

An inspection procedure has four components: preparation, inspection, reporting and follow-up. Let us teach you about these fundamental components. We will provide a solid foundation for recognizing, assessing, and controlling identified workplace hazards and give you the skills you need to effectively inspect the workplace.

Let's up those skills.
