What Is Bear Awareness?
As industries continue to develop, their exploits push further into bear country, thereby exposing an increasing number of employees to dangerous encounters with bears. The first part of the course thus focuses on how workers should behave in order to avoid these animals while in bear country.
When an encounter does take place, however, being able to properly assess the situation and the intentions of the bear(s) can save lives. As such, the second part of the program teaches students how to recognize dangerous bear behaviors, how to respond to emergency situations, and how to use protective equipment.
Who Needs Bear Awareness?
More and more employers are required to provide bear awareness training for their workers as they extend their operations further into bear country. All employees who work in or around bear habitats must receive proper training in order to maintain their safety and that of their colleagues.
In addition, job candidates who know that their future duties will include travel into bear country will sometimes acquire and complete this program independently to improve their CVs. Industries that are most likely to require a certification in Bear Awareness include:
- Energy & Electricity,
- Oil & Gas,
- Logging & Forestry,
- Logistics (Shipping & Warehousing),
- Hospitality & Tourism.
Who Is Responsible for Bear Awareness Training?
Across all jurisdictions in Canada, businesses who send employees into bear country are legally responsible for their safety. As such, it is the employer’s duty to ensure that all workers have access to proper training in bear awareness.
In exchange, the employee takes it upon him- or herself to attend the training program, learn a set of safety measures and strategies, and apply the latter while in the workplace.
What Do You Need to Learn?
To complete this safety training program, you must be knowledgeable regarding the categories of bears that are most dangerous, as well as the strategies that you can use to avoid or deter an encounter. In addition, you must be able to select the correct protective equipment prior to travelling in bear country and you should be able to describe your response in case of an inevitable encounter.
How Long Is the Certificate Valid?
This course in Bear Awareness should be reviewed on a yearly basis. As humans interfere further into bear country, new dangers emerge for workers, which is why it is essential that the latter are up to date with the latest information and safety protocols.
What Other Courses Should I Take?
Individuals or businesses who purchase Bear Awareness training also acquire courses in Lone Worker Safety, Personal Protective Equipment, and/or First Aid Awareness.
