One of the most cost-efficient ways of improving attitudes and performance of your staff is by doing onsite training, tailored to your operation and needs. Online training and training that is open for public registrations tend to be generic in nature, giving information that may not be applicable to your company, even though it may cost much more to train your entire staff in public training sessions. Larry Westlake is available to assist you in determining your company’s needs for training, and recommending the most cost-efficient way to carry out the training: timing (e.g. beginning of the shift), location (usually onsite), style (usually a combination of lecture, hands-on and with a brief quiz/evaluation to ensure comprehension, as well as encourage client feedback). Photographs of the workplace are incorporated into the presentation, to be used as illustrations and teaching points. Some of the sessions Larry has provided include: •Ontario OH&S Law for Construction Projects & Industrial Establishments •Certification 2 training for JH&SC members: Ergonomics & Manual Material Handling/Risk Factors, Machine Hazard Control, Mechanical Material Handling, and Walking & Working Surfaces/Slips, Trips and Falls/Portable Ladders •Health & Safety Representatives – OH&S Act/Duties and Rights/Investigations •Electrical Safety Awareness/Basic Theory/Safe Limits of Approach/Step & Touch Potential/Induction/ Effects on the Body •Pre-Start Health & Safety Reviews: Ontario Requirements •Noise Testing; The Hazards of Noise and the Proper Use of Hearing Protection •Fall Protection: Proper Use of Full-body Harnesses, Connecting Devices and Anchor Points •Traffic Control and How to Use the MTO Book 7 Manual/Road Hazards/ applicable Ontario Construction Regulations/Traffic Control Plan •Chemical Safety; Workplace-specific WHMIS/Labels/MSDS’s •Workplace Inspections/What to Look For •Confined Space Entry/Hazards/Ontario Legal Requirements
