OSSA EWP, Ft Mac
November 3, 2019 @ 7:45 am - 4:00 pm MST| Free
Description: Oil Sands Safety Association = OSSA (correctly pronounced Oh-SA, not Oh-SHA), was a “non-profit organization made up of representatives from Syncrude Canada, Suncor Energy, Shell Albian Sands and Canadian Natural Resources, as well as volunteer members from the labor providers, union, area contractors and learning providers”. OSSA recently merged with Enform to form Energy Safety Canada. There is a new ESC EWP Program under development that may roll out later in 2020. We’ll see. But for now, the existing OSSA EWP is still the course to take, and is good for three years.
If you are working on an Oil Sands member site, you will need the Oil Sands Safety Association (or the up and coming ESC) version of Fall Protection (if working at heights), Elevated Work Platform (if working on man-lifts), and Confined Space Entry Monitor (if working in &/or monitoring confined spaces). More generally, OSSA courses have always enjoyed a good reputation, and are universally observed elsewhere in Alberta and usually in Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and the Territories as well.
Who should attend: Members in need of the respective OSSA safety training for current job or upcoming dispatch
