Testimonial

“I'd like to take the opportunity to express my gratitude for your services to date at the Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital. We had a rocky start with the project due to so many parties being involved for regulations and safety policies, though our team and your team handled the situation with ease and professionalism.

I would like to extend my sincerest thanks to your team, with special thanks to Travis. Travis was only scheduled to work until 4:30pm on Friday and yet he stayed and completed the installation of our stage components on his own time. I believe this took until about 10pm to complete, which is outstanding customer service.

Travis has been a pleasure to work with and I wanted to provide this positive feedback to his Northern Strands team. Thank you again for a job well done and please keep up the good work!”

It goes without saying that any training is (generally) better than no training whatsoever, but does online fall arrest training really count as far as the Regulations are concerned? Interestingly enough, the Regulations go so far as to define the term ‘train’ which means  “…to give information and explanation to a worker with respect to a particular subject-matter and require a practical demonstration that the worker has acquired knowledge or skill related to the...
