Occupational Health and Safety Services in Toronto - Protecting Your Workers 

Operating a business involves many responsibilities - keeping your workers safe should be at the top of the list. However, managing health and safety programs while also running daily operations can be daunting. Staying current with evolving laws to properly train staff, it takes time and expertise many organizations don't have in-house. 

That's where working with an experienced health and safety partner pays off. At Irwin's Safety, we've spent over 15 years providing customized occupational health and safety (OHS) solutions so you can focus on your core business.

Rescue Labour Support in Toronto 

Working in dangerous environments like construction sites, confined spaces, and heights requires proper training and equipment to ensure worker safety. Unfortunately, accidents still happen that require emergency rescue services to retrieve and assist injured personnel.

At Irwin's Safety, we provide comprehensive rescue labor support to help companies in Toronto prepare for and respond to workplace emergencies involving their employees. Whether it's training your in-house rescue team or providing experienced technical rescue workers when needed, we have the capabilities to supplement your workplace safety program. 

Risks of Workplace Accidents 

Industrial worksites contain many potential hazards like confined spaces, working at heights, complex machinery, and more. Without proper safety protocols and training, workers are at risk of accidents such as:

  • Falls from height 
  • Entrapment in confined spaces 
  • Struck by falling objects 
  • Chemical exposure 
  • Explosions and Fires

These types of accidents often require emergency rescue services to retrieve injured personnel or bodies. This is extremely dangerous work that needs specially trained rescue workers with technical skills in: 

  • Rope access systems 
  • Confined space entry/retrieval methods 
  • Advanced medical care 
  • Use of industrial rescue equipment  

Delays in rescue can endanger the injured and also create regulatory issues regarding legislative requirements for workplace emergency response capabilities. 

Rescue Labour Support 

Irwin's Safety provides the following rescue labor support services to supplement and strengthen a company's workplace safety program: 

Confined Space Rescue Teams 

We have extensively trained confined space rescue technicians available to be dedicated to your site or dispatched on-demand when needed. Our crews are fully equipped with the latest gear for safe entry, retrieval, and emergency medical treatment. 

Technical Rescue Training 

We offer complete Confined Space Rescue and Entry programs to get your existing employees certified as onsite rescue personnel. Training covers risk assessment, developing rescue plans, proper equipment use, and hands-on practice in a real-world simulation. 

Standby Rescue Services 

When performing complex or high-risk jobs like tower crane dismantling, our crews can be on standby to provide emergency response if needed. We bring a full complement of gear for access, retrieval, and medical treatment. 

Rescue Equipment Rentals 

For companies looking to build their own emergency rescue capabilities, we offer an extensive inventory of rental equipment for confined space entry, rope access, fall protection, gas detection, ventilation, and more.

Safety Training in Toronto - Develop a Protected, Compliant Workforce 

For Toronto employers, ensuring your teams work safely according to Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) Act regulations can feel like a daunting responsibility. Keeping up with legislative requirements, new equipment, and required certifications takes considerable time and effort many organizations simply don't have. 

That's where choosing the right training partner pays dividends. At Irwin's Safety, we make it simple for industrial and manufacturing businesses to meet safety training requirements across all roles - even with limited time and resources. 

Why Ongoing Training is Crucial 

Safety training provides the skills and knowledge workers need to perform jobs safely while meeting industry-specific OHS regulations enforced by the Ministry of Labour. Other benefits include: 

  • Preventing workplace accidents and injuries 
  • Increasing productivity and efficiency 
  • Reducing risks and liabilities 
  • Ensuring compliance with Ministry of Labour orders 
  • Demonstrating due diligence to insurance companies 

But training cannot be a one-time event. It requires continual reinforcement as: 

  • Processes change 
  • New equipment like elevated work platforms is utilized 
  • Workers take on different roles 
  • Regulations evolve 

Irwin's Safety works as a long-term training partner so your Toronto teams stay protected.
