Drawing from the latest research in the industry, our hazard assessments distill your day-to-day work into a clear list of items requiring further action.
During our initial site visit, we will work with your personnel to identify all worksite hazards that accompany critical tasks. Once an inventory of hazards is established, you can choose to move forward with other documentation (such as Safe Work/Entry Procedures, or Rescue Plans).
Safety Assessments are the foundation of the comprehensive Safety Programs we develop, but they can also stand alone and inform your current OH&S program.
Raven Safety delivers a full range of documentation for all of the disciplines we instruct, including:
Our courses provide the knowledge and skills necessary to perform jobs safely and efficiently whether you are a supervisor of personnel who work in confined spaces; someone who works in confined spaces; or a confined space worker who is also tasked with the rescue of colleagues from this high risk environment.
Our courses are NFPA 1670 and 1006 compliant and meet ANSI and CSA Standards as well as provincial OHS regulations.
They also satisfy EOCP continuing education credits in British Columbia.
The level of training you need depends on how close you get to the water in the course of your work.
The standard training levels are:
1. Awareness (more than 10’ from water)
2. Operations (within 10’ of water)
3. Technician (in or on water)
Read our FAQ about the definition of moving water to learn whether you work in flatwater, or swiftwater.
Whether you work, supervise, or rescue in tower environments, our courses will prepare you to operate safely and effectively. The progression of training provided through these courses ensures that participants reaching the Competent Climber & Rescue level are thoroughly equipped to perform at the highest standard.
We don’t teach public, open-enrollment tower courses, so contact us for more information on how to set up a course for your group. Please note: clients must provide their own towers or coordinate all requirements for access to a tower owned by a third party.
Our courses are consistent with the NATE Tower Climber Fall Protection Training Standard.
Regardless of the boat or the water, our approach will give you the confidence and skills needed to operate your boat in a safe, efficient manner. Training can be geared to in boards or outboards, propellor or jetboat engines, or any non-motorized watercraft.
A Note on Transport Canada Certifications
Our courses do not replace or include Transport Canada certifications (PCOC or SVOP, MED A3 etc.) required to operate boats for work. You obviously need the relevant Transport Canada certification in order to be compliant, but given that these courses are entirely theoretical (ie. you never get in a boat), we believe you should also have one of our practical, hands-on courses in order to learn how to operate a real boat on real water. Confused as to which certification you need? Chances are it’s only a PCOC. Click here to find out which Transport Canada certification you need.
We don’t teach public, open-enrollment boat handling courses, but the minimum number of participants for a private course is only four, so contact us for more information on how to set up a course for your group. Please note: clients must provide their own watercraft.
