Frequently Asked Questions:

What do you mean by “On-Site Training”?

Most safety training takes place in a classroom or hotel in a central location. But on-site training brings the training right to your door. Our trainer provides the course your want, when and where you want it. (Some restrictions apply, please call for details)

What type of facilities do you need to put on a course at our site?

OSH courses need table(s) and chairs for everyone, a projection screen (or lightly coloured wall) and a flipchart or something similar. In most cases a normal meeting room will do fine. Please call us for more information on them.

Isn’t it more expensive to have your trainer come to us?

No. On-Site fees are are for each “course”, not per person. In most cases you can train 12-24 people in a course. Depending on the course, this can lower your cost to $45 per person or less!

How many people do I need to run a course?

Courses usually require a minimum of 4 and can handle up to 24 people.

How Good Are Your Trainers?

They are superb. Our work organizing occupational safety conferences over the past decade has exposed us to hundreds of occupational safety and corporate driving safety trainers, allowing us to pick up the best of the best. They have demonstrated to us their expertise AND their training ability, two areas in which safety trainers must excel and far too many others don’t.

Where Do You Offer These Courses?

On-Site courses are available throughout BC and Alberta. Travel within the greater Vancouver area is not charged. Travel outside the greater Vancouver area is not included in the course fee and is charged at cost. Our regularly scheduled courses are held at our offices located at 2158 – 20800 Westminster Highway Richmond BC.

How Do I Arrange For An On-Site Course?

Call us at 604-233-1842 or email us and we’ll take care of all the details. One call does it all!

I hear that safety committee members are entitled to 8 hours of leave to take safety training. Is that true?

Under Workers Compensation Act: Part 3, Division 4, Section 135 Joint Health & Safety Committee members are entitled to 8 hours of annual paid educational in order to allow them to improve their occupational safety and health expertise. This leave is to be provided by the employer. For more information click here and see that actual legislation click here.

Does the Fundamentals for Joint Health & Safety Committees Course Meet WorkSafeBC's Mandatory Training Requirement for New Safety Committee Members?
