Standardized Safety Orientation


The goal of the Standardized Safety Orientation is to introduce safety concepts and deliver programs designed to reduce the frequency of worker-related injuries, particularly among contractors and new workers by improving their awareness of safety and injury prevention in the workplace. Trained, experienced instructors with acceptable safety qualifications, deliver the Standardized Safety Orientation ensuring that the information is presented effectively. The orientation program focuses on legislation, risk management/hazard control, regulations, safety procedures, electrical awareness and personal protective equipment.

The Standardized Safety Orientation is a cost effective training tool for your organization that can effectively replace in-house safety awareness training offered to contractors. 

Course topics include: Legislation, Risk Management Hazard Control, Regulations, Safety Procedures, Elelctrical Awareness, Personal Protective Equipment and more.

The Standardized Safety Orientation program is delivered through two different sessions. The "Orientation" course is 4 hours in length and provides all of the content available in the program. The "Orientation" course is taken by all first-time program participants. The "Refresher" course is 2 hours in length and is designed to provide essential information to individuals who have experienced the program before. These two separate sessions ensure that maximum benefit is provided to businesses that act as our customers in terms of both content and cost.
