Training & Workshops

Safety Ahead provides classroom and custom onsite safety training and evaluation programs. Watch below for upcoming programs and workshops, or call us for fully customised training.

 

 

Safety Training

At Safety Ahead we consider that safety is a “state of mind” ..

.. an emotion, or an attitude where workers that “think safe” are safe.  We also believe that safety is an instinctual behaviour and the old practice of providing workers with “rules and tools” is not enough. Workers must also “think safety” for any safety training to be effective. As a result we have developed our courses to achieve maximum results.

Fire Safety Plan

Imagine a fire starts in your house starting to block all exits and ways out. You’re trapped and can’t get out of the house. You start to panic. Wishing you would have come up with an escape route or plan to get out. This is where the Fire Safety Plan comes in handy. Fires affect thousand of Canadians every year whether they are workplace fires, house fires and/or forest fires.

In 2014 there was 2,118 residential fires in Alberta resulting in 18 deaths and 104 fire related injuries. In Canada there was 12,071 residential fires resulting in 96 deaths and 928 fire related injuries.   

Always remember before you leave your house, ensure to turn off all potential appliances that could become the source of ignition such as your stove, oven, heaters, and fire place.

As you read through this blog you will learn some planning escape tips and how to test the efficiency of your plan. Also some tips to help eliminate potential house fires.

 

Planning Escape Tips:

  • Have everyone come together within your household and create a plan.
  • Walk throughout your house and inspect all possible exits and escape routes. Use the attached template of a Fire Safety Plan to develop and draw out your escape routes for the children who are in the house to understand.
  • Ensure to install smoke alarms throughout your house and replace batteries annually.
  • Have a muster/meeting point outside of the house where everyone is to meet after they have escaped, ensure it is far enough away from the house. Make sure to mark the muster/meeting point on the map for your family to refer back to it.
  • Have everyone in the house memorize the emergency numbers.
  • When having guests stay over inform them about the fire safety plan.
  • Once you are out of the house, do not re enter the burning building. If there is someone missing, inform the fire department.

 

Testing your Plan:

  • Practice your fire safety plan at least once a year.
  • Allow the children of the house to master the fire escape.
  • If your house has two floors ensure that it is possible to escape through the top level, by placing rope ladders near escape windows.
  • Close doors behind you as you leave the house.

 

The top 10 tips to prevent house fires

1. Test your smoke alarms regularly, replace batteries

2. Inspect all of your heating sources

3. Keep your stove and oven clean

4. Never leave your kitchen while cooking

5. Always check your dryer lint trap for a build up of lint

6. Maintain all cords, ensure they are not frayed, ensure outlet/power bars are not overloaded

7. Properly store all flammable products, do not store propane in garage

8. Never leave candles unattended

9. Never leave the fireplace unattended

10. Keep fire extinguishers around the house, especially near woodstoves/kitchens and other sources of ignition
