The IHSA is the health and safety association in Ontario which covers Construction, Transportation and Electrical Utilities. We are funded through employers WSIB premiums and the Ministry of Labour and have training centres throughout the province. I have included a flyer with this email that will give you a little more information about who we are and what we do.
In regards to our Line Crew Ground Support Program (LCGS). This program has been offered in Sudbury for the last six years and in Thunder Bay for the last two years. It is our intention to schedule a LCGS program at our new facility in Ottawa this year and continue to offer that program in subsequent years.
This 15 week program will prepare individuals for integration into employment opportunities in the Power Line and Construction sector. As new power grids and infrastructure projects are being developed across Canada, the need for skilled workers in these industries are increasing. This program is designed to prepare the trainee for entry level opportunities with various power and construction companies seeking safety conscious ready to work employees. 80% of graduates from this program have been gainfully employed.
Attached is the promotion flyer to give you an overview of the 22 certificates the participants will leave with as well as the invite for our open house. Please note the LCSG Information session will be at the same location (2515 St. Laurent Blvd, Ottawa) but it will begin at 9:30 AM.
