CSO- COMMON SAFETY ORIENTATION - CLASSROOM BASED
The Common Safety Orientation (CSO) is intended for the personnel in the Oil and Gas industry to review safe work practices., and covers the broad spectrum of petroleum industry, instead of just the Oilsands sites. It addresses the most-at-risk behaviours by reviewing the 10 Life Saving Rules of Energy Safety Canada. Industry identified the need for a single safety orientation to reduce duplicate training. This replaces the need for the BSO (Basic Safety Orientation, PST (Petroleum Safety Training), and Egso (Electronic General Safety Orientation).
Allstar Enviro Safety is an Authorized Training Provider (ATP) for the CSO through Energy Safety Canada and offers the Classroom format.

FIRST AID - BLENDED, EMERGENCY , STANDARD AND RECERTIFICATIONS - RED CROSS ORIENTED
Blended learning is an exciting concept in acquiring your First aid certification. It is an innovative program in which the student completes the theory portion of the First aid program online, followed by a classroom day where they complete their physical skills with a certified instructor. In this manner, the student can achieve their Emergency First Aid or Standard First Aid with CPR A or C and AED. If your last course certificate has not expired, you may qualify for a shorter recertification. This saves the student having to spend a longer time in the classroom, but still achieves a Workplace- recognized First aid course (Occupational Health and Safety – oriented) in provinces, such as Alberta.. The certificate of training is valid for 3 years.

FORKLIFT TRAINING - Theory and Practical
WHO SHOULD ENROLL IN FORKLIFT OPERATORS SAFETY TRAINING?
Employers are required to show documented evidence of their staff's regular safety training and competency on forklift operation. Staff operating Class 1 through 6 must be competent to operate a powered industrial truck safely, as it applies specifically to their job. Refresher training should be provided when staff are operating the vehicle unsafely,been involved in an accident or near miss, assigned a different type of truck or conditions in the workplace change that could affect the safe operation of their vehicle. We provide training with your equipment at your facility. Minimum group size is required.CERTIFICATION:
Forklift training is required as per the Occupational health and safety legislation in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. Applicable legislation in Alberta is with OH&S part 19 – Powered Mobile Equipment. The recognized standard for CSA across Canada for Forklifts is CSA Standard B335-04. For OH&S and OSHA in the US, certification and recertification of forklift operators for Class 1 through is required.
FIT TESTING ON AIR PURIFYING MASKS - QUALITATIVE
QUALITATIVE RESPIRATORY FIT TESTING FOR HALF AND FULL MASKS WITH FILTERED CARTRIDGES
If you have staff that wear Half or Full Respiratory Masks with filtered cartridges, they should be fit tested! Employers are responsible to ensure that their workers have an appropriate seal when working with vapours, particulates and fumes that could cause chemical damage to the workers lungs. Employers must select and provide an appropriate respirator based on the respiratory hazards for which the worker is exposed.
We conduct a Qualitative Fit Test, at your facility or ours. You supply your masks and cartridges for the test. Inform us if you will be providing a vapour cartridge or P100 filters and the Manufacturer of your masks
