Training and Testing
Kel-Tech Safety Services Inc. can arrange individual and/or group on site testing and training for proper safety techniques and procedures, according to the Occupational Safety Standards (OCS) for the following categories:
The employer must provide appropriate respiratory protective equipment if a worker is or may be exposed to concentrations of an air contaminant in excess of an applicable exposure or excursion limit, or to an oxygen deficient atmosphere.
Kel-Tech helps employers by performing fit tests to ensure that the respiratory protection has an effective seal with the face; proper paperwork is completed on fit tested employees to ensure employer due-diligence. Kel-Tech helps your staff breathe easier.
Fall Protection Awareness Training
Kel-Tech Fall Protection Awareness Training Instructors will guide you through all situations of Fall Arrest, from the different types of Fall Protection, to what personal protective equipment to use and how to calculate Fall Clearances. Our trained instructors will explain in detail what you need to know, emphasize key points and test your knowledge retention after each step. Having your employees and supervisors fully trained in Fall Protection Awareness, shows the employer is doing their “Due Diligence” and that they comply with Occupational Health and Safety Regulations.
Gas Testing Training
Kel-Tech tests all required gases such as Oxygen; Combustible gases; Hydrogen Sulphide; Carbon Monoxide; Sulphur Dioxide and any other gases required. We use state of the art equipment in order to perform accurate testing. Being Kel-Tech trained and tested, enables the employer to feel confident in the safety of his employees and workers.
