Safety training is on the road to northern Manitoba this October!

At the Construction Safety Association of Manitoba (CSAM), we strive to provide all Manitobans with access to health and safety information, resources, tools, and training programs. That’s why it is important for us to periodically travel to our northern communities so we can offer our services in a way that is convenient for you.

We will be in Thompson October 21 and 22 at the Best Western Hotel and Suites, and in The Pas on October 24 at the Kikiwak Inn, for a variety of courses.

Please note, course prices are the same for members, associate members, and non-members. All courses include lunch and snacks.

Thompson:

Principles of Safety Management

October 21, 2019, 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Price: $200.00

Every company should have a safety program to meet legal requirements, satisfy moral obligations, and earn financial benefits. In this course, you’ll learn a systematic, organized approach to reducing the human and financial costs of job site incidents. Course content revolves around the actual integration of policies, practices, and procedures you need to manage safety within your companies — consistent with the nationally recognized standards of COR™ Certification.

Hazard Identification and Risk Control
October 22, 2019, 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Price: $30.00

Participants will learn four methods of identifying hazards, along with how to assess risk and implement methods to control risk. This interactive workshop is divided into three sections: Spot the Hazard (Hazard Identification), Assess the Risk (Risk Assessment), and Find a Safer Way Everyday (Risk Control). The course will emphasize different control measures such as elimination, substitution, and engineering.

Prime Contractor Responsibilities
October 22, 2019, 12:30 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Price: $30.00

Workplace safety and health (WSH) legislation requires a prime contractor to be designated on all construction projects where more than one employer or self-employed person(s) are involved in work on site at the same time. The prime contractor is granted overall responsibility to ensure compliance with WSH regulations at the work site. Work site activities need to be coordinated so that the work of one employer does not create unsafe conditions for the workers of another employer on the site. The course will focus on providing companies with effective guidelines to assist them in fulfilling their responsibilities. This course will examine a prime contractor’s legislated requirements and focus on developing practical methods to meet these requirements.

The Pas

Inspections
October 24, 2019, 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Price: $30.00

The identification of hazards is a vital component of an organization’s overall safety and health management system and a legal requirement under the WSH Act & Regulation. This course will provide supervisors and safety representatives with information on various types of inspections, required documentation, and communication and control techniques.

Incident Investigation
October 24, 2019, 12:30 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Price: $30.00

Investigations are a required element of an effective workplace safety and health program. Participants will learn the seven steps involved in conducting effective investigations: visiting the scene, gathering physical evidence, conducting interviews, evaluating evidence, recommending corrective actions, writing the report, and conducting follow-up. Legal requirements for incident reporting and investigation will also be discussed. The information presented can be applied to all types of investigations, including right to refuse, harassment, violence, worker concerns, near misses, and serious incidents. Supervisors, safety and health committee members, managers, employers, and workers will leave this workshop with clarity of their roles and responsibilities and the tools and resources required for application.

Developing Safe Work Procedures
October 24, 2019, 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Price: $30.00

This course provides an overview of hazard assessment, risk assessment, and controls. The main emphasis of the course is job hazard analysis and how that translates into a safe work procedure that can be used on the job.  Legislation requires all employers to “develop safe work procedures for work that is done at the workplace, train their workers in the safe procedures and ensure worker compliance.”  This session will assist all levels of an organization’s employees to:  recognize when a written procedure is required, conduct an analysis on a particular work task to identify the steps, hazards and controls and write the final step-by-step procedure.

Safety Representative & Committee Training
October 24, 2019, 12:30 p.m. to 4 p.m.                                           
Price: $30.00

Legally, every employer on every job site must have (at minimum) a designated safety representative and/or a safety committee familiar with their legal duties and responsibilities. What’s happening on your work sites? What should you be doing? This workshop is specifically tailored to the roles of the site worker safety representatives and committee members. Learn the guidelines and practical solutions to dealing with your legislated responsibilities for safety and health concerns on the job site and within your company.
