Logistics (Shipping and Warehousing) – An Industry That Could Be Fatal
The latest Motor Vehicle Safety statistics in Canada show that there are over 154,000 nationwide grievances due to traffic collisions every year. Almost 10,000 of these are serious injuries and 1,841 of them result in death. In 30% of the fatalities and in 17% of serious injuries, seatbelts were not worn.
This serves to show that, even though Canadian roads have become much safer in the last 20 years, safety training for the logistics and warehousing industry are vital. It’s not only the lives and health of employees that are at stake, but also the proper running of related businesses.
The list below details the safety courses associated with some of the most commonplace jobs in logistics and warehousing.

Warehouse fires are a commonplace in warm climates and they are often triggered by inadequate packaging from third-party sources. This program teaches workers how to prevent and evacuate potential fires, but also how to manage damages when they take place.
Logistic, shipping and warehouse workers often use cranes to quickly and efficiently move and transport different kinds of goods. However, if they are not manipulated correctly, these vehicles can lead to devastating injuries and even death. This program teaches students how to identify different types of cranes, as well as evaluate potential dangers and take safety precautions to minimize the risks.
Workers in the logistics and transportation deal with interpersonal conflicts on a regular basis. This Conflict Resolution program is designed to help employees deal with conflicts in a constructive manner, ideally before a crisis takes place.

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.
