Safety Training

Safety Training 

Other Courses 

This company has entered into the safety training sector of occupational health and safety because of the safety training my own son received. No not by yours truly. But by the very first company who hired him in construction. I won't mention the field this company conducted their business in. However they are one of the first occupational trades that arrive on a new development.

When he got his first job i was so proud of him. He wasn't messing around trying to figure out what to do with his life while clued to a TV with a game controller in his hand. Nope, he got a job in a trade that hard on the body and and can break you if you are not careful. He could wait to tell me about it, and the inhouse safety training he received. That's when I decided to design, build, and launch my first course.

What They Call Safety Training

The inhouse course he was given was titled Fall Protection. It wasn't some watered down 3 hour course. That would have been somewhat tolerable. Oh no, his safety training in fall protection was only 30 minutes long. That's NOT a training program. It's not even an watered down version, or an orientation. It's a toolbox talk, and that's all it was. To add insult to injury they didn't give him a harness to use. They issued a fall protection belt. NOT ON MY WATCH AS HIS FATHER AND SAFETY PROFESSIONAL. 

That was the beginning of a Safety Training Division for FreeBird Safety Services. It took me 2 weeks to put together a 124 frame PowerPoint presentation and author a 60 page Student Worker Manual. The week after that my kid was at my house on a Saturday morning. His butt planted in a chair at a table bright and early for a 7:00 am start. I would instruct him. 8 Hours later he competed the Personal Fall Protection System Training Program I designed. He passed the final with a 90% test score. 

My Policy and a Promise

I made it a point of, that FreeBird Safety Services will never let a student worker leave with a failing mark. Every student will pass. That's not to say it's an easy course or I am handing out certifications at will. Not a chance. That's a huge moral, ethical and legal issue. No, I have a policy that if a student worker fails the final exam, I will stay after the course with them. For a couple more additional hours if need be, together we will work on it until they understand the curriculum. Their safety, maybe their job and most certainly their life depends on it. After 2 more hours if a person still fails the exam, they have to come back with in the next 5 business days to go over it again. And that's all free of charge. 

 

 Training Courses 

What we offer right now are 2 courses. Each involves Fall Protection. However, the second course I just developed consists of a shorter version of fall protection due to a AWP Aerial Work Platform component was added. Even though some sections of the initial Fall protection course was omitted, the second manul has been increased from the original.

Coming Soon

On the agenda  and coming soon the future courses being developed for the Safety Training  Division are WHMIS 2015, Confined Space Entry, and Telehandler Forklifts.
