Emergency First Aid Training

The owner of Emergency First Aid Training (EFAT)  is retired Meaford Fire Chief, Mike Molloy, with over 27 years in the fire services.    EFAT was first established in 2002 and, as a Red Cross training partner, has provided training to individuals, businesses, and fire departments throughout Owen Sound, The Blue Mountains, Collingwood, and Meaford. EFAT knows that emergencies can happen at any time, and they are proud to teach the lifesaving skills necessary to respond quickly and with confidence. All EFAT instructors are first responder firefighters and paramedics.
    First aid training is also a requirement of the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB), with which most businesses in Ontario are required to be registered. The majority of the courses that EFAT offers are a hybrid of online instruction, followed by a session of in-person training to properly demonstrate correct first aid techniques. This means that employers and staff can learn the skills they need to ensure a safe workplace, with minimum time away from the workplace.

WHMIS 2015

Duration: 2 hours online
Every worker who works with, or in proximity to, a hazardous product in the workplace must have Workplace  Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) training. In February 2015, WHMIS was modified to align with the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS). The “new” WHMIS is known as WHMIS 2015. WHMIS 2015 Online is based on the current 2015 legislation and meets the legislated requirement for general  WHMIS training. WHMIS 2015 has come into effect with a transition period that lasts several years. During this time, there may still be hazardous products in the workplace that use the "old" WHMIS 1988 labels, classifications and (Material) Safety Data Sheets. To address this situation, WHMIS 2015 Online also includes information about WHMIS  1988 hazard classification, labeling and communication.
Note: Employers must also provide workplace-specific training and instruction for each of the hazardous products in the workplace.
Completion: To progress from one module to the next, participants must pass a mandatory test. Those who do not pass the test must review the module content and re-test. There is no limit to the number of re-tests.
Certification: Upon successfully completing all modules, there is a printable certificate for your records.

Lockout/Tagout

Duration: 1.5–3 hours online
The term "lockout/tagout" refers to specific practices and procedures to safeguard workers from the  unexpected energizing or start-up of machinery and equipment, or the release of hazardous energy  during service or maintenance activities. Lockout/Tagout explains the importance of lockout/tagout  in protecting the health and safety of workers.
Employers should train ALL workers in the basic concepts of hazardous energy control, including energy isolation, locking and tagging of control devices, verifying de-energization, and clearing danger points before re-energizing  equipment. Workers whose duties involve installation, maintenance, service, or repair work should be trained in the detailed control procedures required for their particular equipment. This training should enable workers to identify tasks that might expose them to hazardous energy and the  effective methods for its control.
Completion: At the end of each module, there is a test. Participants must successfully complete the test before continuing to the next module. Participants that do not achieve 100% can review the module content and try as many times as necessary to advance and complete the course.

This course should be provided to all workers in a workplace that contains a confined space. It meets the requirement for Awareness Level training.

Note: Successful completion of Confined Space Awareness Training DOES NOT reduce or negate the need for workplace-specific training, as provided by the employer.
