SAFETY TRAINING

Safety is paramount in our industry. Not taken seriously, it can lead to serious injury and non-compliance can lead to significant fines and business interruption. MacFarlands has been offering safety training to the construction industry for over five years. Our full time, in house trainer offers a full range of regularly safety training at our professional facility in Burnside.

We are happy to offer onsite training and work around your schedule. Classes can be held in the evening, overnight or on weekends. We understand it can be a challenge to lose one or more individuals during working hours, so let us work when it is best for you. We also maintain records of expiry dates – you have enough to worry about running your business. We’ll notify you when you or your team are due for renewal.

We are happy to customize courses based on your needs. Want to be trained on something you don’t see here? We regularly develop unique courses based on customer requirements. Please contact Greg Greenwood to discuss.
