BC Forest Safety Council Refresher Training for Small Employers (SEBASE/ISEBASE)

May 2012

When your company registered for SAFE Companies, either you or an employee of your company attended the Small Employer Occupational Health & Safety Training (SEOHS) 2-day training course. This training made the person who took the course the company’s internal ‘auditor’. The WorkSafeBC Certificate of Recognition program requires auditors to complete seven (7) hours of refresher training every three years to maintain the quality and currency of their skills and knowledge to be eligible for the WSBC COR rebate.

Refresher training focuses on helping to improve safety management within your company, as well as reviewing the audit submission process and relevant updates.
