Risk Management

 

VEHICLE and EQUIPMENT TRAINING

Improperly trained workers represent a significant liability for Employers.  This is further complicated if a worker is operating a vehicle or piece of equipment or machinery.  Not only can they present a safety risk to themselves.  But, they can also pose an increased risk to other workers or civilians.  In the event of an injury or more significant incident, the Employer may be subject to prosecution under the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA) or Criminal Code of Canada.  In addition, they may also be subject to additional fines, increased WSIB premiums, higher insurance rates and civil litigation.

 

Under the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA), Employers are legally required to ensure that all workers using or operating vehicles and/or equipment are properly trained by an accredited and qualified provider.  This includes certification and/or licencing for both initial and re-current training.  As part of their proactive workplace inspections, the Ministry of Labour (MOL) will routinely request proof-of-training for workers.  It is the legal duty of the Employer to not only track all employee training, but be able to produce accurate records upon demand.

 

From initial employee training and competency assessments to a comprehensive review and analysis of your Education and Training program, our customized services include:

COMMERCIAL VEHICLE AND FLEET OPERATIONS & CVOR

 

For registered commercial vehicles and fleet operations, the requirements for mandatory vehicle inspections and driver logs requires a more in-depth Health and Safety program to ensure Legislative accountability and compliance.  The Commercial Vehicle Operations Program (CVOP) includes site-specific audits and monitoring, as well as ongoing driver education and awareness training.

 

DRIVER SAFETY TRAINING and ASSESSMENTS

 

For organizations with commercial vehicles, it is important to have a Defensive Driver training program in place.  This includes both in-class Theory education and awareness.  As well as, in-vehicle Practical Driver Safety Evaluations and Assessments.  This includes routine audits of vehicle inspection checklists, driver logs and company records.

 

PROOF OF TRAINING TRACKING
