Training and Learning
Save time and money by learning via webinar.
Bringing in an on-site trainer can be really expensive. When you have to add in the costs of travel, accommodations and the price of a really great facilitator, it’s no wonder so many companies struggle to be compliant.
Distance learning is a great option for companies who:
Want to host training opportunities, but lack the skills or experience to train themselves;
Are located 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.
Avoid the high costs of an on-site trainer with Distance Learning.

It is necessary to examine underlying factors in a chain of events that lead to an accident. An investigation should be conducted by someone experienced in accident causation, experienced in investigative techniques, fully knowledgeable of the work processes, procedures, persons, and environment of a particular situation. Let us teach you how to effectively perform accident/incident investigations to identify root cause and prevent re-occurrence.

RACE: RECOGNIZE, ASSESS, CONTROL AND EVALUATE HAZARD CONTROLS
The “recognize, assess and control” method of dealing with hazards is actually 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 voiced as a worker 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 the hazard recognition, assessment and control principles to deal with all hazards.
Who Should Attend: Managers, Supervisors, Health and Safety Reps., Committee Members, Workers

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.
Who Should Attend: Managers/Supervisors, Committee Members, Health and Safety Reps.
WORKPLACE VIOLENCE, HARASSMENT AND BULLYING
This course will introduce and define terms associated with workplace violence and harassment, including other important and related topics, such as domestic violence in the workplace and workplace sexual harassment. It will also lay the foundations upon which an effective workplace violence, harassment and bullying prevention program can be established.
Everyone in an organization is required to abide by policies relating to workplace violence and harassment. This would include workers, frontline supervisors, managers and employers. By the end of this module, all parties will understand their roles and responsibilities, what to do in violent incidents, what to expect in an investigation, and be provided with skills for conflict resolution.
