So you may be aware that there has been an updated version of Saskatchewan OHS Regulations released this year with some changes.
Some of the changes that grabbed my attention and may have affected your workplace are found in section 5 regarding first aid (as well as tables 2 & 9 of the appendix).
First Aid personnel required is dependant on the level of risk and number of workers just to pick something for example lets say you are on a worksite that has 26-50 workers on a moderate risk worksite you will need a "class B" attendant.
Please see more in the OHS regulations but a class B attendant must have taken a 60-80 hr course. In order to respond to this we will now be offering the 2 week Red Cross EMR course in Saskatoon.
It is always important to keep up to speed on legislation that is applicable to your worksite so if you havent already done so please check it out by looking up Saskatchewan OHS regulations 2020.
Stay safe all
Here at Victory we offer WHMIS training in our classrooms in Saskatoon or even online. If you use chemicals, which most of us do right, then you need WHMIS training. When you look closely at any bottle or chemicals you use, it might get confusing. And with us being so conscious of keeping clean nowadays, WHMIS importance is at an all time high. WHMIS stands for Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System. What we do in our course is we talk about the symbols you may see on bottles, labels that may need to be applied to different chemicals, we talk about safety data sheets which give you information on chemicals you are using, and more. This course is great for just about any industry you are involved in. Who doesn't use chemicals? We offer our WHMIS training in Saskatoon in our classroom or online.I
