With the creation of the “Playbook”, all fire department personnel need to be trained in emergency scene traffic control. WorkSafeBC guideline to Part 18 (Traffic Control) identifies what should be included in this training, and allows for the employer or a third party to do the training.
Many years ago, the BC Safety Council created an Emergency Scene Traffic Control course. When the BC Safety Council ceased operations, the BC Construction Safety Alliance was given the training program. In 2014, the BCMSA took over coordination of the training and updated both the instructor manual and participant materials.
With the high demand for this course, we have now provided the training material to several training agencies, to facilitate both the Train the Trainer and participant courses in Emergency Scene Traffic Control. The BCMSA will maintain the Province-wide database of trained instructors and trained individuals, and will continue to provide Certificates upon completion of the courses.
Any fire department requiring this training may choose from any of these organizations (listed below), and contact them directly to establish training dates and training rates.
If you have individuals in your organization trained to facilitate this course in-house, please make sure you have the current edition of the training manual, branded by the BCMSA and BCFTOA.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Justin Chouhan.
