LET'S WORK TOGETHER TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF NEW WORKERS
The safety of your high school students as they prepare for their first job or placement is important to you. Its important to us too. We realize safety training can be an expensive investment, so we developed ELSA, our Entry Level Safety Awareness Program to help bridge the gap between training and what can be challenging financial realties.
We offer low half-day and full-day rates to help you affordably provide quality safety instruction to your students. Every course we offer is eligible for the educational rate - some age restrictions may apply. Ontario High Schools and School Boards are welcome to contact us for our Educational Rate Card. Then we'll work with you to provide the courses you need at the time and place best for your students.
PLANNING: While most courses can be conducted within the available time frame for school schedules, some courses, such as Working at Heights, will require students to stay after the regular end-of-day and alternative transportation methods for those students should be arranged in advance. Regular lunch periods and breaks may also have to be shortened in order to fulfill course requirements.
Our youth training courses are designed with High Schools and Employment Services in mind to offer a market specific variety of training packages that combine skills for the head as well as the heart.
Safety Guys instructors have combined extensive backgrounds in landscaping, forestry and horticulture. For the past five years SAFETY GUYS has been working with local service organizations in Kingston, Napanee and Brockville to develop and offer programs that combine our innovative safety training with an education in landscape techniques. These hybrid programs are designed to prepare youth for a new career and help them find employment in a field that is still very much in demand of skilled workers. Courses vary in length from two to six weeks depending on the desires of the agencies.
All courses provide the appropriate safety certifications, such as WHMIS and Fall Arrest, as well as hands-on projects that prepare and empower students for entry level positions in the horticultural industry.
