Safetyscope Inc.’s president and director Tim Morrison, Vaughan, Ont. mayor Linda Jackson, councillors, and others officially launched Vaughan’s first-ever confined space safety school: The Safetyscope Learning Centre. Safetyscope specializes in onsite confined space safety and rescue.

“With the introduction of the new CSA confined space standard (Z1006)
released this Spring detailing specific training workers need to work
safely in confined spaces, we believe that our Safetyscope Learning
Centre comes at the right time for both the employer and the employee to
offer this skill-based training,” said Tim Morrison. “With over 25,000
companies who work in confined space areas, and with one or two
fatalities occurring in confined spaces (sometimes two deaths at a
single incident) in almost every year since 1950 in Ontario, we believe
that great training makes this usually tough issue become really
simple.”

The school also offers construction safety classes in its new 2000-sf
facility. The learning centre offers safety courses such as: fall
arrest, WHMIS, respirator protection, fire extinguisher use, confined
space, and First Aid. The school will be providing hands-on training to
complement in-class training.
