En-Safe (1992) has had a reputation of delivering a higher level of facilitated safety training than the industry standard since 1992. SafetyABC was formed in 2004, supplementing En-Safe (1992)’s training, because “Certificate Safety Training” was based primarily on performance-based legislation without legislative guidelines or standards to follow.
En-Safe (1992) will continue to specialize in facilitated safety training, primarily for workers performing work that puts them at higher risk. The training can be tailored and/or customized and is not transferable from Employer to Employer, and is typically of longer duration than the industry standard. Our philosophy is that it is better to train fewer better than to train many to a lower standard. The primary trainer has been and will continue to be R. Craig Doran, P.Eng. Craig is the founder and President of En-Safe, and has more than 25 year’s full-time experience as a safety trainer and has personally trained more than 2,000 organizations since 1992.
SafetyABC is now a division of ETS providing safety awareness training, post-training application instruction, information awareness, and OHS consulting solutions. For example, one course offered is Working at Heights (WAH) training in Ontario. The new, MOL-approved, WAH training for Construction Projects is under the SafetyABC division, not En-Safe (1992). The certificate training is transferable from employer to employer, certification is issued by the MOL, not the training provider, and is intended only to be an awareness course, not to be tailored or customized. It is also typically shorter in duration than an En-Safe (1992) course. However, in addition to the MOL-approved course, participants require post-training application instruction. Also, for workers who may be exposed to height hazards or potential dangers, but do not perform a task requiring the use of fall protection PPE on a construction project, information awareness may be an adequate business solution alternative to the MOL-approved course. The above is an example of safety awareness training, post-training application instruction, and information awareness. Clients in the industrial or mining sector can receive an En-Safe (1992) WAH course, and we strongly recommend this.
For an effective business solution and due diligence, more than one level of training may be more logistically feasible. There is a typical hierarchy of learning and various levels of delivery. With an adequate training-gap analysis, various business solution options can be designed to suit any safety or HR budget, logistical, or resource restrictions, and yet still put your people first.
