SCOT (Safety Construction Online Training)
An interactive, online training course focused on worksite safety. Includes WHMIS 2015.
The goal of WHMIS is to provide workers with the information they need to stay safe on the job. With WHMIS, hazardous products must have a label and a safety data sheet (SDS). Labels identify the product’s hazards and precautionary measures.
Knowing where the hazards are in your workplace is important to creating a safe environment. Recognizing hazards and how they affect you and others will help eliminate and/or control the risk of accidents.
Job Safety Analysis
Employers are required to identify workplace hazards and protect their employees from harm. Furthermore, employees have the right to know about the hazards in their jobs and how to protect themselves. One way to accomplish this is to conduct a Job Safety Analysis (JSA) on any tasks that concern the safety of employees. This course has been designed to help you meet all regulatory and government requirements including the Occupational Health and Safety Code.
Personal Protective Equipment
Managers, supervisors, and workers all have responsibilities with respect to the selection and use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Legislative requirements and standards provide the framework for the manufacturing and selection of PPE for different tasks and work environments. By following this regulatory framework you will put yourself, and others, in situations in which the equipment used provides the protection required for the job.
Ladder Safety Training
Ladders are used in a wide variety of tasks both at the work site and at home. There are many different types of ladders in use and this course will focus on those most utilized at the work site. It is easy to forget that there can be real and significant hazards associated with ladder use therefore it is important that all workers and employers understand what those hazards are and how to avoid them. Safe work practices will be presented in this course that you can use to control the hazards associated with ladder use.
