January 1, 2015 – BVA Employees Accessibility Standard Training for CUSTOMER SERVICE

In order to comply with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA), BVA employees must be trained on the Accessibility Standard for Customer Service.  Please read and complete the questions in the link below.  Please print off pages 7 & 8, answer the questions, and email to nancy@braun-valleyassociates.ca as soon as possible.

BVA Employee Training

Braun-Valley Associates is committed to excellence in serving all customers including people with disabilities.  We are committed to the principles of independence, dignity, integration and equal opportunity for people with disabilities.

BVA EMPLOYEES – PLEASE NOTE IEC CHANGES:

The Safety Topics and Safety Refreshers are part of the 3 year BSO Plus training.

The BSO Plus Safety Refresher is a semi-annual checkpoint designed from the monthly safety topics.  Completing the refresher is a requirement for the Basic Safety Recertification (BSR) course. UPDATE:  The 6-month Safety Refresher will become an ANNUAL Safety Refresher.

Starting in January 2015, the 6-month BSO Plus Safety Refresher will be changed to one annual refresher to be released in January. The refresher will contain 40 – 50 questions, covering all hazards taught in BSO Plus. Completing the refreshers is a mandatory requirement for the BSO Plus course.

The BSO Plus Safety Topic is a monthly review designed from the BSO Plus agenda.  The safety topics are a way to stay current on the safety information over the 3 years.

In 2015, Safety Topics will no longer be released monthly, but will all be available as individual documents on our website. This allows contractors more freedom in determining when each of the Safety Topics will be rolled out to workers. This also provides contractors with the opportunity to give more time and detail to each individual subject, rather than having to cover multiple subjects at one time.

Employers are required to retain tests for record retention and submit the training records into the IEC database.

 

 

=========================================================

 

NOTE: IEC CARD EXPIRATION:
Please make sure your IEC card is up to date.  If you need recertification please let us know in advance and we will book you a time.  Here is the link for the Refresher course –  Sarnia-Lambton Industrial Educational Cooperative.
