What You Need to Know about MI Safety’s OSSA Confined Space Entry & Monitoring Safety Training

Edmonton, Alberta is known for its thriving oil sands industry as well as other industrial sectors such as manufacturing, construction, and agriculture. If you are currently looking for confined entry safety training courses, Edmonton’s MI Safety has two different options that you can choose from: the OSSA Confined Space Entry and Monitoring course or the online Confined Space Entry and Monitoring course.

Determining which of the two courses is right for you involves knowing what each entails. The Confined Space Entry and Monitoring safety training course focuses primarily on the basics of what you need to know when working in a confined space environment; it does not include monitor training.

The Oil Sands Safety Association course, on the other hand, prepares individuals with all the technical and legislative information required for working on OSSA member sites. However, the OSSA accredited course does not provide training on rescue plans, equipment, and hazards because OSSA member sites already have their own rescue teams.

MI Safety Inc. offer a number of different safety training courses in Edmonton and Devon including Fall Protection, First Aid & CPR, Ground Disturbance, Enform H2S Alive, OSSA Confined Space training and OSSA Regional Orientation. To get certified for any of MI Safety’s on-site courses visit http://misafety.ca/pages/training-courses to register or for online courses visit http://misafety.ca/pages/online-training-courses. For more information on any of our courses (780) 987-3465.

MI Safety Emphasizes the Importance of Workplace Hazardous Material Safety Courses, Edmonton AB

Primary industries that drive Edmonton’s economy include the oil, gas, agriculture, and forestry sectors. These industries as well as countless others like them require an adherence to the proper safety procedures that can be learned through safety training. Edmonton-based MI Safety offers residents the Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) – the national standard in hazard communication for this exact reason.

Available in online, in class, or as a self-study, the WHMIS course manual teaches students the basic information on the history of chemicals in the workplace, common terminology, workplace labels, supplier labels, and Material Safety Data Sheets. To make sure students understand the material, the WHMIS course is set up to review all the chemicals that may be in the workplace, classes/divisions of chemicals, WHMIS symbols, handling procedures, storage, and the use of PPE.

Suppliers, manufacturers, employers, and workers all have a responsibility to educate themselves on WHMIS. Not only is WHMIS necessary to ensure that workplaces remains safe, but workers have a right to know about hazardous materials they might be exposed to.

To learn more about all of MI Safety’s safety courses, Edmonton residents can call 780-987-3465. The manual costs $22.50+GST and can be purchased in person, on the MI Safety website, or by phone. The classroom version is available for group of no less than 8 people. Upon completing any training option, MI Safety issues a WHMIS training certificate within 30 days.

Looking for Comprehensive CPR Training? Edmonton’s MI Safety Presents Individuals with Both Standard & Emergency First Aid Course Options

Whether you are working with children, the elderly, or in hazardous environments first aid training is an essential skill that many employers look for. Moreover, first aid certifications expire every 3 years and without re-certification you may be unqualified to continue working in your sector.

This is why, at MI Safety, we offer individuals first aid courses on a weekly basis. Our courses are regularly offered on Mondays and Tuesdays, and in the case of a long weekend on Tuesday or Wednesday. In addition, our first aid courses are certified by the Canadian Red Cross, but we can also offer the St. John’s Ambulance format for students requesting it.

At MI Safety we try to accommodate the requirements of all of our students which is why we currently offer two versions of first aid training. Edmonton residents have the option of taking two distinctly different courses: standard first aid or emergency first aid.

The first of our 2 available courses is the 2-day standard course which covers both life threatening injuries and non-life threatening injuries that can progress into something more severe. The emergency course teaches students what to do when faced with life threatening injuries exclusively. By the end of either of these training courses students can expect to learn all of the necessary theoretical principles of first aid along with a hands-on portion that they must participate in.

It is important to remember that although first aid & CPR training is mandatory for employees in certain occupational settings.  The majority of the time that first aid is performed is when a family member or a loved one is in trouble. Individuals can help ensure the safety of those around them by regularly re-certifying themselves through first aid courses. To learn more about first aid or CPR training, Edmonton residents can call 780 987 3465.
