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.
The Annual Refresher needs to be completed during the month of January 2016. It will be posted to the IEC/ Safety Partnership website the week before Christmas. (not later than Dec 18th)
It is mandatory to complete this requirement in order to register for the Basic Safety Re-certification (BSR) class or to have your IEC badge updated or reprinted.
The attendance sheet, test questions, test answers and instructions for uploading training records are on the IEC/ Safety Partnership website.
PLEASE NOTE: The 2016 Annual Refresher will have a set of questions that will be different than the January 2015 version.
ACCREDITATION: The IEC has been accredited for our Working At Heights program from the MOL.
We will be scheduling these classes in the coming weeks … our first class is March 23, 2015.
