Workers and employers in the Wheat City have been given a unique opportunity to receive workplace health and safety training on their own turf.
Safety Services Manitoba has condensed its three-day Lift Truck Train he Trainer program into a one-day course to certify new lift truck trainers and recertify existing lift truck trainers.
The course will be offered on Thursday, Oct. 25, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Motel 6 in Brandon.
“To reach our goal of making Manitoba the safest province, it’s important to think about the big picture,” said Judy Murphy, SSM president and chief executive officer.
“We are passionate about the well-being of all communities, and that means reaching out to rural areas and helping them make safety a priority.”
As the province’s leading not-for-profit safety service provider, SSM has more than 80 years experience providing Manitobans training and consulting in occupational, road and community safety.
“We want to ensure the participants get the best value for their training dollar when they register for SSM’s first ever rural training courses,” Murphy said.
All participants receive a free Leader’s Guide and PowerPoint to match the student book.
