Health and Safety for Fire Prevention Officers
Length: 1 day
PSHSA’s Health and Safety for Fire Prevention Officers training program is aimed at keeping Fire Prevention Officers safe on the job. This training covers the legislation and hazards which they may come across while performing their inspections. These hazards include trenching, falls, asbestos, mould, confined space, post fire exposures and driving. By the end of the course, participants will be able to recognize hazards and establish various types of controls to ensure their safety.
Now that most FPO's don't come from operations they don't have the ops training. This program equips the FPO with the knowledge to identify hazards that they might encounter while working alone.
Onsite sessions are available contact your local consultant to arrange this.

According to Statistics Canada more than 3,400,000 Canadian workers feel burned out. Burnout is a psychological response to hazards. This webinar will explore the workplace factors which have the potential to cause the mental harm leading to burnout. Additionally, we will be discussing what we can do to eliminate or control the hazards which have the potential to result in burnout.
Join Dr. Ash Bender as he discusses the intersection between mental stress, illness and resilience and provides some specific actions workplaces can take to build resiliency.
Exposure to chronic mental stress is known to have negative effects on employee health and behaviours.
Understanding factors associated with job stress provides opportunities for intervention by changing work practices and prevention by building resilience.
Resilience generally describes characteristics or capacities enabling individuals and organizations to recover from adversity and use available resources adaptively...the ability to "bounce back".
