FTI’s Confined space training is an awareness level program and is designed to be used in conjunction with the site-specific information and training designated by the client. Our goal is to provide the participants with the general knowledge to work in and out of confined spaces. This course covers the regulatory requirements of Ontario Regulation 632/05 including the legal requirements of each level of responsibility for Employers, Supervisors and Workers.

This course covers the requirements for the establishment, maintenance, and monitoring of a respirator program. This course will discuss how the human respiratory system works, respiratory hazards, qualitative-fit and Quantitative fit testing, the purpose of respiratory protection, different types of respirators and their purposes, and the appropriate use, inspection, cleaning and storage of respirators. Regulation 833 and O.Reg.490/09. Also covered in the program are the CSA standards Z94.4 (Selection use and care of respirators) and Z180.1 (Compressed breathing air and systems).

This course is a model class designed to enable the Instructor/s to train Lead Workers to perform his/her job with the knowledge and skills to work safely and productively while adhering to all provincial, federal and local regulations on lead and lead abatement practices. Students in this course will discuss their roles and responsibilities as Lead Workers, safe work practices, PPE, health effects of lead exposure and other hazards such as recognizing lead-based paint hazards, interior and exterior dust abatement, establishing containment areas, setting up and using decontamination processes, waste disposal and clean-up and inspection procedures.

O.Reg.490/09- Designated Substances

Approximately 144 fatalities occur every year due to incidents involving the accidental release of hazardous energy in the workplace. Failure to follow LOCKOUT/TAGOUT procedures can also lead to severe injuries such as contusions, lacerations, and amputations.

FTI believes that the LOCKOUT/TAGOUT standard (CSA Z460-13) will raise the awareness level of workers and in turn help prevent injuries or fatalities that occur from exposure to hazardous energy in the workplace. Students in the course will learn the essentials of lockout/tagout. Objectives include discussions on why lockout/tagout is necessary; potential hazards associated with the accidental release of stored energy; proper procedures for lockout/tagout; special lockout/tagout situations; equipment start-up and operation procedures; and their role in preventing incidents.
