We are undergoing a number of changes here at Redhead Health + Safety.

1) We have put the wheels in motion to upgrade our Working at Heights/Fall Protection Training to meet the new provincial standard which came into effect April 1st.  Under the regulations anyone working in the construction industry or trades at 3 metres or 10 feet and above must take the new training course in the next two years.  We are hoping to have our certificate and approval from the MoL to train this course by the end of May.

Respiratory protection is the process of making sure you are safety from substances you may inhale while preforming your daily work.   It also applies to work you may do around your house on you time off.  Many people breath in dangerous substances everyday and don't even know they are doing it.

What substances are we taking about? 

Dust-airborne solid particulate generated by mechanically breaking up solids like those created when sanding or silica dust in cement plants.
