Supervisors and workers participating in ‘hot work’ must ensure that the risks of fires and explosions are eliminated or controlled. Safety Coordination Services offers Fire Watch training suitable for workers in all industries in Alberta, ensuring supervisors and workers have the training and skills necessary to predict, prevent, and control fires and sources of ignition from occurring.
This course is certified by the Oil Sands Safety Association (OSSA)™ and is recognized on all OSSA™-partnership worksites in northern Alberta.
