Confined and restricted spaces are work areas which are not intended for continuous employee or occupancy, and which have by design, limited or restricted entry or exit.
Employers who require workers to work within confined and restricted spaces are obligated to prepare a Code of Practice , or Safe Work Procedures, and to provide workers with appropriate training. Confined Space Entry Hazard Awareness trains personnel to recognize hazards of working in a confined or restricted space and to carry out confined space entry and attendant duties safely. Confined Space Rescue training is required for emergency response team members, this training is also available through Arctic Response.
TDG and Fuel Handling
This course covers all elements of the TDG Ground program while adding in the additional modules required for air shipments. This course provides participants with an understanding of their responsibilities under the TDG Act and Regulations for the preparation, offering and acceptance of dangerous goods. Air carriers use the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations during the preparation and acceptance of dangerous goods for air transport. This course uses the current IATA Regulations.
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.
