Recently the Safety Partnership has directed the IEC to begin collecting the learnings from Serious Injury or Fatality potential. By September the IEC hopes to have a collection of recent incidents where nobody was hurt, but the potential was very high for a fatality or serious injury.
Watch for a communication about the launch of this new capability in the IEC database!
Thanks to everyone who signed up for an information session at our June 2017 Roadshow!
Even our scheduled IEC Working at Heights class got the personal touch with instructor IEC Jody shown coming back down from the top of the demonstration trailer!
Monthly Safety Topics can be delivered to your employees in any order throughout the year. The idea is to have covered all of the Safety Topics by the end of 2016. There is a calendar on the IEC website that gives a suggestion of how you might cover all of these topics in the next 11 months.
Here is a copy of this calendar:
JAN: Annual Safety Refresher
FEB: Rights & Responsibilities
APR: TASC & Observation Based Safety
MAY: Heat Stress & Ergonomics
JUN: Designated Substances & H2S
JUL: Asbestos & Refractory Ceramic Fibres (RCF)
AUG: Working at Heights & Ladder Safety
SEP: Safe Work Permits & Energy Isolation
OCT: Housekeeping & Slips, Trips and Falls
NOV: Cold Stress & Driving Hazards
DEC: Confined Space/ Safety Attendant

Here’s someone that arrived for safety training at the IEC last month in a most unusual vehicle! It’s called a Slingshot and it looks like fun as long as you wear all of your safety gear!
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!
