Are eSafetyFirst courses recognized in the industry?
Trained professionals have developed all our courses following Canadian Safety Standards to provide the participant with the necessary knowledge in hazards and safe workplace environments.
These courses are developed to meet and exceed the OHS Standards and the latest CSA Standards. Therefore, they are recognized by OHS and Worker Compensation Boards.
How long does it take to complete a course?
The content length is displayed on all product pages; however, some individuals may take longer than others to finish the course.
Please note that a group training session usually adds at least one hour extra, on top of the content length, due to preparation and possibly failed testing questions.
Is there a time limit to complete a course?
There are no time limits to begin or to complete a course.
Will my progress be saved if I disconnect/log out midsession?
Yes. Our learning system will leave a bookmark on the slide/module from which you left the session so you can always relaunch the course and resume from where you left off.
Can I take a course from a mobile device?
Yes. Our courses are cross-device compatible, meaning not only can you take a course from a mobile or tablet device, but you can also start the course on a device, pause and resume on a different one.
What happens if I fail a test?
Individual training has unlimited exam attempts, which means if you fail, you can retake the test until you pass it and progress further.
To prevent downtime in group training sessions if specific individuals ignore the presentation and delay the process for everyone, we’ve decided to limit group retraining to one re-attempt per test.
Can I download the course material?
No. To prevent unauthorized access and modifications to our course content, you cannot download any of our presentations or testing sections without our consent.
Any unauthorized attempt to replicate our material will result in a permanent ban from our system, and we will take legal action to protect our business and developed content.
What courses should I take?
Deciding which safety training courses you need, start with a workplace hazard analysis.
Then, based on a workplace inspection by a competent person or at the very least, the employer will be responsible for selecting the programs and the appropriate level of training.
eSafetyFirst Canada does not provide inspection or consultation services to help you decide what courses are needed for implementing safety programs. However, we offer a consultation page to explain what hazards our safety training programs will cover and help you decide on the required courses.
Can I preview the course before buying it?
Yes. Each program comes with a 3 minutes demo in which you can freely access any of our programs to ensure the presentation’s quality matches your requirements.
Unlocking the full content requires payment for the program.
You can locate the preview option in the top section of each product page.
What's the difference between Online and Blended Training Courses?
Courses marked as online training usually require only theoretical training and evaluation to be compliant. Specific courses marked as blended training may require workplace-specific hands-on practical evaluation.
For such classes, our platform will provide you with theoretical training and evaluation, which you can do online, and a certificate will be issued for that part.
On top of that, we also provide you with templates/resources needed to complete the workplace-specific training. However, the evaluation part of this process is done by a competent person from or contracted by your company. A workplace supervisor or employer usually fills this role.
