Canada Safety Training 101

Safety training is essential in the workplace, but not all employment opportunities are implementing proper safety precautions. According to the Institute for Work & Health, “only one in five Canadians reports receiving safety training in their first year of a new job.”

An additional 75 per cent to 80 per cent of workers do not receive information on how to do their jobs safely, which can increase the likelihood of occupational hazards. Many provinces have health and safety legislation that requires employee safety knowledge and training.

Safety Training Benefits

There are many benefits to taking safety training classes.

Safety/care training creates and promotes safer work habits, and businesses will hire you to train employees in their place of business.

Safety training’s flexibility enables you to hold classes at a location of your choice, and upon course completion, a three-year certificate card is awarded by Allstar Enviro Safety.

Canadian Oil & Gas Industry Facts & Figures

According to the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers, “Canada is the third-largest producer of natural gas and the sixth-largest producer of crude oil in the world.”

Employment sectors include: drilling and service rig activities; geophysical aka. “seismic” services; permitting and reclamation; line construction; drilling and data acquisition; petroleum services; well services; oilfield construction and maintenance, and lastly, production and transportation services.

Crude oil accounts for 40 per cent of Canada’s energy demand, in addition to 15 per cent of Canada’s merchandise exports. Canada is ranked number three in the world in crude oil reserves (after Venezuela and Arabia).

Natural gas accounts for approximately 30 per cent of Canada’s energy demand. Canada has enough natural gas resources to meet its demand for the next 100+ years at current levels of 700-1300 trillion cubic ft.

The oil and gas industry currently supports an estimated 550,000 jobs across Canada. Naturally, this figure calls for a high volume of safety-certified practitioners! For more information on safety training programs and/or instructor certifications,
