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).

Another great training program will be available soon at Victory Safety and Training. Global Ground Disturbance will be part of our course lineup in October 2013. This program was created by Global Training Centre out of Strathmore Alberta and because of it's assured quality and great reputation has become the standard for many Saskatchewan and Alberta work sites. Another great program to pass on to our clients as part of our continual strive for excellence at Victory Safety and Training.

Fusion Safety Services OSSA Confined space Entry and Monitor training in Saskatoon

Oil sands safety association certified programs have become a more highly desired program in Saskatchewan so we at Victory have taken steps to try and fill that need. Who is OSSA? many people ask. 

OSSA is a non-profit organization made up of representatives from Syncrude Canada, Suncor energy, Shell Albanian sands and Canadian Natural resources as well as volunteer members from the labor providers, union, area contractors and learning providers.

Though not required in Saskatchewan OSSA programs can be very beneficial for those who work in certain areas of Alberta and is a requirement of the pre-mentioned OSSA members among others. 

***We also anticipate OSSA fall protection becoming available in Saskatoon in September 2013***


Safety 2013

posted by Victory Safety    |   January 5, 2013 16:05

It's a new year and no doubly looks to be a busy one especially when it comes to safety. Stiffer penalties and a move to zero tolerance looks to make the biggest impact on Saskatchewan worksites in 2013. As you've probably noticed Saskatchewan has been going through a transition in safety especially in the last 5 years. What employers and safety representatives have probably noticed is that inspectors have been a little lenient while this transition has been taking place but that leniency is expected to fade away. There will no doubt be an increase in fines and penalties and the importance of showing due diligence is at an all time high. This can sound intimidating for some though it is important to remember that I don't believe it is any inspectors/investigators goal to increase punishment but to increase the number of workers making it home safe and to encourage more of an honest effort in assurance of a safer worksite. Remember, when we think we've got it all figured out or assume it won't happen to us that's usually when it does. We at Victory Safety and Training always emphasize that we are here to assist in this process under the mindset that there is no such thing as a perfectly safe worksite and there is and always will be room for improvent. We look forward to serving Saskatchewan worksites for another year and it is an opportunity we do not take lightly. All the best in 2013 from the ownership and staff of Victory Safety and Training.


Respiratory protection

posted by Victory Safety    |   December 11, 2012 18:01

If you have ever been involved in choosing safety equipment you have probably been put in a position where you've had to learn more than most would anticipate. Air quality is a concern on many worksites unfortunately respiratory protection is not used nearly as much as it should. First of all do you need a air supplying device or an air purifying device? How long will protection be required? What are the levels of contaminants workers may be exposed to and is it near or above IDLH (immediately dangerous to life or health) levels and or above workplace contamination limits? If an air purifying option is required then what type of cartridge is needed? After all is said and done in selection do you know how to properly store your equipment, maintain your equipment, determine when it is no longer in useable condition and determine wether workers have a proper fit? It never fails to astound me how much there is to learn when it comes to safety not to mention the amount of times you see well meaning employers and supervisors choosing improper equipment. In a growing province like Saskatchewan it is a never ending endeavour to learn all there is to know about safety. Just another reason why we at Victory Safety and Training are aiming to assist employers as much as possible to make their worksite safer for all including assisting with respiratory protection.


AED's (automated external defibrillator)

posted by Victory Safety    |   November 20, 2012 19:18

It is extremely encouraging to see the success of MD Ambilance' heart safe program in Saskatoon. It seems like just yesterday that AED's were first introduced yet here we are to see AED's available at hundreds if locations throughout our city. Many believe that it is only medical professionals that can make a difference in a medical emergency yet many people have great success stories that they are here to tell because of the availability of AED's in various public locations. Did you know that up to 80% of cardiac arrest casualties are in a heart rythem that can be detected and possibly corrected with an AED? Yet the chances of the aed being successful decrease significantly with each minute there is a delay. Therefore AED's have been shown to be much more valuable and effective in the hands of those at an emergency 1st. 


First aid and CPR

posted by Victory Safety    |   November 8, 2012 13:21

Now we hate to put a level of importance on a certain course but it is a tough argument to place any course above first aid and CPR due to the fact that you may need to use the skills aquired in this program on any given day wether at home, work or just out and about. Many people panic when faced with a situation involving the need for first aid due to the feeling of helplessness when they're not sure what to do. Taking a first aid and CPR course will improve skills, knowledge and mental ability to handle an emergency. It's amazing how much a calm approach can bring control to an emergency, it can calm the casualty down and therefore slow the progress of shock, it can calm family members and bystanders and establish confidence in your ability. It is often not ems but those who are their 1st who play the most important role in an emergency. Let us help you be that calm, confident responder at any emergency with an OH&S first aid course available from Victory Safety and Training.


Fall Protection/Fall Arrest

posted by Victory Safety    |   October 29, 2012 18:36

Working at heights is a very common part of many work sites/work activities and many workers are unaware of their, as well as the employers responsibilities regarding fall protection training and planning. The fact is that much of the work at heights takes place with little planning and most are unaware of the various options available to them. Engineered controls such as guardrails, travel restraint, establishment of a control zone and fall arrest (horizontal and vertical) are some of the primary options available. It is important that workers understand the benefits and limitations of all these options in order to make the most educated decision during planning. Choosing equipment is also very important and ensuring equipment is CSA approved as opposed to just being CSA compliant can save supervisors and employers from unneeded stress if an incident occurs. Did you know that according to Saskatchewan Occupational health and safety regulations that a fall protection plan is required when work is taking place 3 meters or more above ground level and workers are not protected by a guardrail or similar barrier? Well now you do and we can help prepare workers to work safely at heights with training and equipment available at Victory Safety and Training.
