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
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.
