Automotive and Manufacturing – An Industry That Could Be Fatal

Alongside Health and Social Services, the Manufacturing industry has the highest number of recorded lost time claims. Although the two are roughly on par in terms of the adjusted, total amount of injuries per total number of workers, the bulk of accidents in Manufacturing are of a different nature than the ones in Health.

According to the AWCBC, over one third of all accidents that happen in a Canadian manufacturing setting are traumas, likely due to falls or improper handling of equipment and/or tools. Given these circumstances, it is vital that both current and future employees in the Manufacturing sector receive appropriate safety training.

The following list includes several of the most common manufacturing jobs and the safety courses associated with each.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are you courses compliant with OHS & Worker Compensation Boards?

All our courses are compliant with OHS and the CSA Standards which the Worker Compensation Boards follow. However, there are some courses which also require the hands-on practice and evaluation, on top of the theoretical training and evaluation which is offered by the online training.

For these courses, we have included, in our training modules and in their respective resources section, an operator evaluation checklist which you can use to assist you with this hands-on practice and evaluation. This part of the training is done offline and has to be workplace specific and as such, it is not something that we are able to offer.

What happens after I purchase the course?

Once you finish with your checkout process, you will immediately be credited with the courses that you have purchased. You can then use the “Invite New Users” function or the “Group Training” option, depending on your preferred method of training, to assign the courses to your workers.

Can I use my email / same email to invite my workers to course?

No. Each email used in the invitational process has to be unique for each person taking the course.

If your workers do not have an email address, you can use the invitation function for workers without an email address, by clicking “Yes” in the checkbox near the question “DO YOU HAVE WORKERS WITHOUT EMAIL ADDRESS?”. This will open a different invitation process that does not use email addresses for.

Can everyone do the training from the same computer?

Yes. Please note that you do, however, have to log out after each session so the next worker can login using his personal details.

To log out from an account, you will have to click “My Account” from the top right corner of the website and once you are in your user control panel, click the “Log out” button.

How long do you have to complete a course?

Workers invited to take a course will have up to one year to complete their training so this should offer them plenty of time to do it.

Can you pause & resume a course?

Yes. When you pause a course, a bookmark will be left to that slide / module. You can later resume from there or chose to start from the beginning of the module.

Can you retake the testing section if you fail?

If your workers are invited in an individual training system (they do the training from their own account), they will have unlimited exam attempts.

If your workers are participating in a group training, they will have one re-attempt per module. This is to prevent the entire group from waiting for certain individuals that are not paying attention to the training session.

Do you offer offline training as well?

Not at this moment. All our courses are online.

Still Have Questions?

No worries. We are here to help. You can call us at (866) 470-7740 if you have any questions.
