Upcoming Changes – BSO/CSO

With the merger between the Oil Sands Safety Association (OSSA) and Enform creating Energy Safety Canada (ESC), there will be changes coming related to OSSA and Enform courses.  All OSSA and Enform courses will be re-branded to ESC courses in the coming months.  We are an Energy Safety Canada Authorized Training Provider and will keep you informed as the changes are rolled out.  Currently, the OSSA BSO is transitioning to the ESC Common Safety Orientation (CSO).  The CSO is an orientation program designed as a general safety for new workers in the oil and gas industry across Canada.  The CSO will be available starting November 1, 2018 and is available exclusively online and will require virtual proctoring capability.  Advantage Learning Solutions Inc. has computers available to assist workers in completing the program.

The OSSA BSO continues to be available in class until December 31, 2018 and will be grandfathered on the OSSA member sites. Each work site will be responsible to determine the orientation requirements.

Please call Advantage Learning Solutions Inc. for more information.
