MI Safety Explains the Importance of Global Ground Disturbance Level I and II Safety Training

Edmonton and Devon residents know that safety training is important because it will not only help further their careers but can also save lives and prevent avoidable accidents. Alberta’s economy is largely focused on jobs that can often be dangerous, like working with oil sands. That is why MI Safety Inc. offers a diverse variety of courses that ensure the risk of accidents is lowered. One such course is the Global Ground Disturbance Level I and Level II.

What is the Global Ground Disturbance Level I and Level II Training Course?

As the name suggests, the Global Ground Disturbance Level I and Level II training course is intended to educate students who will be working under the ground. More specifically, workers and supervisors alike who are working in trenching and excavating will learn all they need to know about Global Ground Disturbance.

Some of the topics that are included in the course are:

  • What is Ground Disturbance?
  • Occupational Health and Safety Legislation and the Pipeline Act regarding excavation planning
  • Preparation checklist for excavation planning
  • How to create a site and plot plan
  • Techniques for excavation as well as advantages/disadvantages
  • Responsibilities of workers and supervisors in Ground Disturbances
  • Crossing Facilities right of ways
  • How to complete a backfill inspection
  • Contacting and working with stakeholders involved in ground disturbances
  • And more!

The Global Ground Disturbance Level I and Level II course is offered from MI Safety every second Friday in Edmonton, but MI Safety Inc. is also able to offer on-site training to Devon residents or individuals who cannot attend the Edmonton classes. Moreover, not only is MI Safety’s Global Ground Disturbance Level I and Level II recognized in the industry, but it also has one of the best prices (only $140 per person).
