MPS FIRST AID TRAINING
MPS Property Services is dedicated to the Health & Safety of all our team members, with a vigorous program in place that focuses on prevention, hazard recognition, safe work practices & procedures, and accountability.
A significant Health & Safety responsibility for MPS management is ensuring that we are fully compliant with the regulations set forth in the Ontario Health & Safety Act. The Act requires that each
workplace shall have a competently trained and certified First Aid provider (and First Aid kit) present in the event that a personal injury, accident or other health related emergency occurs.
For a facility with only one building or workplace involved, this is much simpler to manage. But what do you do when the vast majority of your work is performed off-site, by a dozen separate crews, at numerous different workplaces throughout the day?
The answer is to make sure that at least one person on each and every MPS crew has received the required training & certification. This is a simple reflection of the philosophies extolled in The MPS Way.
As such, over a two day period in this month, MPS Property Services provided for over 20 team members to complete the Canadian Red Cross Emergency First Aid with CPR/AED certification training!
MPS employees and managers enthusiastically engaged in this training, learning valuable knowledge & skills throughout the process. For many long-time staff, this was the second (or even third) time participating in this type of certification, a testament to the dedication of our workers in helping make each and every work site a safer one!
MPS Property Services is very proud of our team members for successfully completing their First Aid certification, and would like to thank and congratulate them all for their achievement. Keeping our team members safe at work is a priority. Having trained first aid providers on every work site is an important part of our overall Health & Safety program, along with our many other educational & prevention tools.
