Weekly Review: April 4th-9th

The team at the Justine Blainey Wellness Centre in Brampton, ON is all set with their brand new AED and completed training!


“Just wanted to let you know that our course instructor was BRIAN, he was so fun! We all learned a lot and had a fantastic time, everyone was so engaged and involved. I was excited to be a part of this course as I have never done CPR.” —Jennifer M.



We had our first (amazing) experience working with the Ronald McDonald House Charities Toronto in November 2016, when the whole Rescue 7 team cooked and served dinner to families in need. Now, we’re back again, and this time CEO John Collie will be working the frontline with the McDonald’s Canada team at Highway 7 and McCowan Road in Markham!

Working At Heights (WAH) training requirements came into force on April 1, 2015, requiring that employers must ensure that workers on construction projects successfully complete a working at heights training program approved by the Chief Prevention Officer (CPO) and delivered by a CPO-approved training provider before they can work at heights.

Workers had until April 1, 2017 to complete an approved working at heights training program. However, THE DEADLINE IS BEING EXTENDED TO OCTOBER 1, 2017, lengthening the transition period by six months in specific circumstances.
