Update on OSG Services – COVID-19

Our hearts go out to those who have been most deeply affected by COVID-19.  We appreciate the efforts of the local and global communities who are working hard to contain the spread and treat the ill.

Safety is not just something we train, it’s a value we live by. We are taking precautions to help keep you and our team safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Please note this situation is rapidly evolving and our response may change as new information becomes available from reputable sources including the Public Health Agency of Canada.

In-Person Public Training to Resume

OSG is looking forward to providing a safe and positive training experience for your employees as we resume in-person public training.

Safety of your staff and ours is always our top priority. The following precautions will be implemented at our trainings:

  1. Training rooms will allow for a 6 foot radius between each participant, as well as the trainer so physical distance can be maintained
  2. Enhanced cleaning & disinfecting protocols
  3. Hand sanitizer and/or hand washing available in all training rooms
  4. Trainers and participants will be screened as per Ontario’s Self-Assessment criteria

Please note there may be additional protocols in place depending on the facility and municipality where training is taking place. Learn more about precautions OSG is taking and our expanded refund policy.

We’ve Launched Distance Learning Options

In response to COVID-19, many organizations are implementing working from home and various distancing policies. We recognize that our clients continue to operate their businesses, and we have therefore committed to providing them with the same reliable and engaging training they are accustomed to receiving from OSG, but online. Our distance learning options will allow learners to virtually attend our facilitator-led courses. This is in addition to our 100+ courses already available online.

OSG has been in regular communication with the Ministry of Labour, Training and Skills Development (MLTSD) to ensure our distance learning offerings for CPO-Approved certification courses for Joint Health and Safety Committee Certification continue to meet certification criteria. 

Extensions for Expiring Certifications With Booked Training

The MLTSD will be granting extensions for individuals who are unable to renew their certificate before expiry due to the COVID-19 situation. In order to honour their existing certification, the certificate holder must have a receipt or order confirmation for training that will allow them to recertify.
