En-Safe’s (1992) CH-O2 Construction Heat Training, is approved by the Technical Standards and Safety Authority (TSSA). En-Safe is an approved Training Provider #000155415.
A CH-O2 certificate under Ontario Regulation 215/01 made under the Technical Standards and Safety Act, 2000, states that a person who is the holder of a CH-O2 certificate or the holder of a ROT (record of training) may activate a propane, natural gas or oil-fired construction heater or torch that has an input of 400,000 Btuh or less. This ROT can also connect it to or disconnect it from piping, tubing, a refuelling appliance, a container or a natural gas meter.
Our courses are primarily targeted for workers that perform tasks involving construction heaters and/or torches. The training may also be known as an ROT, Propane Ticket, Propane Training, Enbridge Training, or Union Gas Training.
On-Site training can be customized to include policies, procedures, and/or equipment specific to your organization. There is a maximum class size of 12 participants as stipulated by the TSSA.
