First Aid and CPR, what are the levels about?

posted by Victory Safety    |   August 22, 2014 16:54

You might be wondering what level of CPR you need for your work site (or potential work sites). 1st of all it is always best to see what potential employers want prior to registering for a program. Standard First Aid is the 2 day OH&S compliant first aid program which includes CPR and AED Training and is the standard on most work sites. So next question, what level of CPR do I need? Well if your worksite consists of primarily adults (ie. an oil field job), you would most likely be fine with CPR A, If there is a possibility of working with children (ie, school, day care etc.), you would most likely need CPR C, but if you are a health care provider (ie. paramedic, nurse etc.), you would probably need an HCP level CPR program. All of these options and much more available at Victory Safety and Training.
September First Aid classes available in Saskatoon every Monday and Tuesday throughout September as well as a couple weekend classes on September 5th and 6th & September 19th and 20th.

Standard First Aid and CPR

posted by Victory Safety    |   August 20, 2014 23:20

You just never know when you will need to utilize the skills obtained in a first aid program. If somebody started complaining of chest pain right where you are and suddenly stopped breathing, would you know what to do. Or if a loved one started choking and couldn't breathe, what would you do.  Having spent time working in EMS and having children at home I couldn't tell you  how many times I have had to give first  aid but no situation stands out more than when my little girl had a severe obstruction in her airway and I had to utilize the first aid for choking skills I had obtained through the many first aid programs as well as EMS training I had received. A couple simple back blows knocked the obstruction loose and her airway was cleared.  All the time  and effort I had put into training was rewarded right there. Don't get caught not knowing what to do, the skills obtained In a standard first aid class are simple yet effective and will help ensure should you encounter an emergency, that the person suffering the problem is much more likely to make it through safely because you (a trained first aider) are there to help. Standard first aid is one of the many programs  available at Victory Safety and Training to help ensure you and your loved ones make it through your day safe.

Whats acceptable for Safety Certification

posted by Victory Safety    |   June 24, 2014 09:39

I am often asked so thought I would write about it to answer this question that so many people seem to have. The question is "what tickets do I need to work in the oilfield, construction site etc."? Whether you are working in Saskatchewan, Alberta, Manitoba or wherever, there is no ticket that is absolutely guaranteed to be accepted in every workplace. The reason being is that every worksite is different with unique hazards and different work environments and it the employers responsibility to ensure training is adequate for their workplace. This is why for different workplaces there are different requirements which is why it is important to research what training requirements are for worksites your on or potentially will be on prior to selecting courses to invest in. If you're an employer, job seeker etc. this simple research can save you very important time and money in the future if you arrive to a worksite or have an opportunity come up only to realize that the certificate you received is not acceptable. Examples; We offer an H2S Awareness program in our online training library which is very informative and may meet your worksite requirements or serve as a great refresher in perhaps an agricultural field (ultimately up to employer/worksite to decide) but if you're heading into the oilfield you will most likely be required to have an Enform H2S Alive training certificate. Another example is Ground Disturbance, an intro to Ground Disturbance is also available in our online training library, however, we also have an instructor led Ground Disturbance program based on OH&S requirements and a Global Ground Disturbance program. Once again the online program may be acceptable on some worksites, others may want it to be instructor led and OH&S compliant in which case our in house Ground Disturbance program would most likely meet requirements, and still others may get more detailed in what they want by specifying that training must specifically be a Global Ground Disturbance course. This is why Victory Safety and Training is continually adding many courses certified by organizations such as Enform, Oil Sands Safety Association (Through Fall Protection Group, Fusion Safety Services etc.) that we hope can make your search easier and help save you time and future costs. Hope this helps if you did have this question. Stay Safe from your friends at Victory Safety and Training

Is it time to renew your safety tickets

posted by Victory Safety    |   May 9, 2014 14:22

Welcome to spring it's a great time to check those ticket expiry dates. It's not fun to show up on site and find out they're expired. Renew all your tickets with one stop at Victory Safety and Training for public courses or have us come to your site (anywhere in Saskatchewan, Alberta, Manitoba or wherever you may be) if you have a group. Renew everything from H2S Alive, OSSA Fall protection, OSSA Confined space Entry and Monitor, Global Ground Disturbance and many other safety programs at your 1 stop shop for all your safety and training needs.

Ground disturbance

posted by Victory Safety    |   October 1, 2013 17:28

Some food for thought, have you ever disturbed soil deeper than 1 foot deep with a shovel, or to any depth with a machine? Did you know that is actually considered a ground disturbance? Did you ever try and find out what was there before you dug? People commonly conduct ground disturbance of some sort without ever really thinking about it. There are many ways to find out what may be there but like they say you can't prepare for something you don't know is there. How to do that and other information covered when conducting a ground disturbance are just a couple of the topics covered in our ground disturbance programs. Stay safe from your friends in safety at Victory Safety and TrainingSmile

Planning Ahead

posted by Victory Safety    |   September 19, 2013 15:31

Now I say planning ahead because we do not want to talk too much about the winter that will come soon enough. But some questions must be asked about the safety equipment used on worksites as we plan ahead for the cold. For example  did you know most gas monitors will have limitation when working below -20 degrees (celsius). Also did you know some equipment may have been tested down to a whopping -7 degrees (celsius) which is not a very uncommon spring day in most parts of Canada not even speaking of the winter. Also take care of connecting points in fall protection which may be more vulnerable to failure in winter with ice build up etc. So just some tips from your friends at Victory Safety and Training as you plan ahead for the winter which we know is still a long ways away (hopefully).
