Walk With Us! IEC staff are once again participating in the Steps for Life campaign. You can sponsor us by purchasing a “foot step” to help us raise money for a worthwhile cause….helping families of workplace tragedy.
Amy Fuerth and Janine Gulliford have recently joined the ICE staff. We wish them a warm welcome to the IEC “family”. Amy has been hired as a Program Developer and brings with her years of experience in program development as well as a teaching background. Janine is taking on the role of instructor and will use her field experience in the classroom to great advantage.
All IEC staff wish both of them all the best in their new careers here at the IEC!

Here is a copy of this calendar:
JAN: Annual Safety Refresher

MAY: Heat Stress & Ergonomics
JUN: Designated Substances & H2S

Here’s someone that arrived for safety training at the IEC this morning by bicycle! Do you think there is a New Year’s Resolution to get more exercise behind this mode of transportation???
IEC staff are back after Christmas break with regular scheduled training. We were able to train a number of workers over the holidays by request and that worked out very well.
Looking forward to all enjoying a safe workplace in 2016 where nobody gets hurt!
Debbie, Charlotte and Kim showing some Christmas spirit on the last day of regular classes here at the IEC. If you require training over the Christmas break, call our after-hours training phone number which is found on our outgoing telephone message system.
A Safety Partnership Subject Matter Expert team was created to work on a number of safety initiatives over the last few months. These initiatives were chosen based on the 2015 Injury Reports which showed a large number of injuries were to hands and fingers as well as many injuries from slips, trips and falls in icy winter conditions.
As a result of this good work, resources have been made available to all Members through the IEC database Portal. These resources include:
- Hands & Fingers Safety Resources
- Winter Materials – slips, trips and falls
These materials would help enhance your safety programs already in place or reinforce the kinds of safety measures that would help reduce injuries in the future as we get back into winter conditions. Videos will soon be added that could be used in safety meetings and for other learning opportunities.
Special thanks to the plant personnel who have made this material available to all the of the Safety Partnership members!
