Fire Warden Training

April 30, 2020 from 8:30 am – 12:00 pm

Click here to register

All employers have a duty to ensure the safety of their employees and visitors to their workplace. This includes having an emergency plan and training the leaders within their organization to understand their roles in an emergency. Good emergency plans depend on a company’s employees understanding what to do in the event of a fire or emergency.

This means that some employees will be assigned particular roles and responsibilities as Fire Wardens. This includes specific duties during an evacuation and specific responsibilities for ongoing safety or fire prevention. Proper fire warden training is important for these assigned employees to ensure they have the knowledge to carry out these duties.

MLTSD Inspections in 2020

MLTSD Inspections in 2020

In 2020, inspections by the Ministry of Labour, Training and Skills Development (formerly the Ministry of Labour) will be focused on the lack and misuse of personal protective equipment (PPE on work sites.  In 2017, 7483 orders were issued for the lack of PPE on work sites. This was the second highest number of violations in construction for 2017.  As a result, from January to March, 2020, the Ministry’s inspectors will be checking to see that the right PPE is being used on jobs, including PPE such as respiratory devices; hard hats; boots; hearing, skin and eye protection; high visibility clothing and face shields.

PPE should be provided to workers wherever there are health or safety risks that cannot be controlled in other ways. The Ministry inspectors will focus on ensuring that the right PPE is available and is being used.

More information on the inspection schedule can be found on the Ministry site.

Ontario rewards Employers with a Health & Safety Management System

Ontario rewards Employers with a Health & Safety Management System

Organized, systematic approaches to health & safety have been shown to increase worker awareness and participation in safe practices. This in turn, has reduced workplace injuries and illness. Similar programs in Europe and Japan have resulted in a decline in workplace accidents.

On November 22, 2019, the Ontario government announced a pro-active initiative, Supporting Ontario’s Safe Employers. This initiative recognizes and financially rewards employers who have successfully implemented an occupational health & safety management system in their workplace. The incentives, estimated at $140 million, are open to all employers in Ontario, regardless of size or sector and will come in the form of WSIB rebates over a three year period.

Building on the provincial program, WSIB is launching their own Health & Safety Excellence program. The provincial program will target those employers who have already implemented a health & safety program while the WSIB program is aimed at encouraging employers without an existing program to adopt one.

Ways To Make Workplace Safety Training More Exciting

Ways To Make Workplace Safety Training More Exciting

When you hear the phrase “Workplace Safety Training,” do you jump for joy? The answer is probably not. In fact, it’s probably more of the opposite of that reaction. Workplace safety training can often be a very boring topic, and seem like just another chore for you to have to go through in your business as an employee or an employer.

Yet you know the importance of getting your employees trained effectively, efficiently, and comprehensively. But everyone knows that information is easier to retain when it’s presented in an easily digestible manner that people will actually enjoy.

Here’s how to get the most of your employee’s workplace safety training.

Have a Conversation

If you’re doing a presentation about workplace training or simply guiding your employees through a safety lecture, don’t do so without allowing a place for feedback. Most studies report that the education that attendees yield from lectures is relatively low. On the other hand, when you incorporate room for interaction into your presentation, retention of the topic is increased.

When you’re preparing to train your employees on safety, structure the event so you’re having a conversation with your workers. Instead of talking at them, you can talk with them, and they will feel more engaged.

A Little Incentive Never Hurt

If you used a rewards-based program as an incentive for employees to complete their training, they’ll have a whole new level of motivation associated with their task.

You can turn the training into a friendly competition, based on who can complete it in the shortest amount of time, who can score the highest on the tests, or who can answer the most questions.

You can use a gift card as a reward, or just bragging rights that they did the best. You can even offer an extended break to the person who performs the best.

Use Roleplay

Getting your head into the game with roleplay is a great way to increase retention of materials and allow the training to make a lasting impact. When you assign roles to your workers, you can act out real-life scenarios that may arise on the job. This way, your employees can engage in kinetic learning and have already been walked through a potential dangerous situation. That way, if the dangerous situation did actually arise, they’ve already experienced a similar scenario and will remember how to react.

Use Multimedia

Wherever possible, incorporate ways for your employees to interact with the information that you’re giving to them. Depending on your work situation, you can make video games that simulate situations that they might encounter, or use quizzes to keep them paying attention to the presentation at hand.

The closest you can get to simulation a real-life situation that you’re describing, the better. Not only does this make your presentation more fun, it gives workers some experience dealing with potential situations.

Get it at F.A.S.T.

You knew we were going to go there. Yes, when you do your workplace safety training with F.A.S.T., you’re getting all that exciting workplace safety training. You might have thought that the word “exciting” and “workplace safety training” couldn’t be used together in the same sentence, but we’ve got your back for engaging safety seminars of all types.

We make safety a way of life, not just a one-time training session that your employees are going to be likely to forget. We offer all measure of safety and training solutions for your business, and can consult with you to create the most effective training session possible.
