First Aid + CPR & AED
Standard First Aid with cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a comprehensive two-day program to deal with workplace injuries and medical emergencies, meet legislative requirements and prepare for injuries in and outside the home. Standard First Aid training is appropriate for individuals and workplaces that have ready access to Emergency Medical Services (EMS). Where medical services may realistically be delayed more than 30 minutes, Wilderness First Aid is more appropriate.
The First Aid programs taught by Arctic Response meet or exceed national, territorial and provincial standards and incorporate the most recent 2010 Heart and Stroke CPR Guidelines. Additionally, Arctic Response sits on the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) Technical Committee currently developing CSA standards for Workplace First Aid.
Our Fall Protection training ensures that students have a strong knowledge of legislation and Fall Protection administration, including harness and equipment inspections. We also strongly believe in practical hands-on exercises that prepares workers for the jobs they will be doing. This can include ladder and scaffold training. Under Canadian Health and Safety Code, employers must prepare a fall protection plan if a worker at a work site could fall 3 metres or more and is not protected by guardrails. The plan must include procedures for rescuing workers who have fallen. Relying on outside resources such as municipal fire services to effect rescue does not meet the employer’s obligations under this legislation. Arctic Response provides additional consulting services to develop Fall Protection plans and provide tailored training for both Fall Protection Hazard Awareness and Fall Protection Rescue needs.
While working at heights of 3 metres (10 ft) or more, workers must be trained in and use Fall Protection systems. Arctic Response offers Fall Protection training which meets and exceeds both Federal and Provincial or Territorial jurisdictions.
Fire Extinguisher Operations
Fire Extinguisher Operations training includes fire theory, types of extinguishers and agents, principles of fire extinguisher use, review of first aid for burns and smoke inhalation injuries, and practical exercise using controlled fire. Each student will operate one 5 lb ABC fire extinguisher on a live, controlled fire during the practical phase of training.
WSCC Supervisor Training
The NWT/NU Workers Safety & Compensation Commission (WSCC) Supervisor Safety Course introduces supervisors to occupational health and safety legislation, in particular the Safety Acts and Occupational Health and Safety Regulations. This in-depth program clearly defines a supervisor’s direct role and responsibilities towards workplace safety, best practices in identifying and controlling hazards, instruction in contractor safety management, and practical, industry-relevant exercises.
It is an employer’s responsibility to ensure supervisors participate in a familiarization program delivered in a format suited to the supervisor’s level of knowledge, training and experience. Upon successfully completing the program, supervisors should understand their roles and responsibilities with respect to legislation, and can competently and safely oversee the work of others. This program fulfills the due diligence of an employer to train employees at any supervisory level.
