This course is designed for supervisors and anyone who is involved in, or needs a strong understanding of ground disturbance procedures. 

It provides an in-depth understanding of ground disturbance legislation, safe work procedures, and the damage prevention process.  


Sending workers into the classroom for training means time off the job site, less production, and a higher cost to companies.

With online training, workers can prevent injuries on the job, learn at their own pace, review material more than once to refresh learning and a shorter training time is required (no lunch breaks, etc.)

Company benefits include the assurance that your workers are trained according to WCB regulations, preventing injuries, not having to pay for a training facility, no loss of production, can ensure completion of the course (completion certificates provided), and you're meeting your COR requirements.
