For the third year in a row Northern Strands attended one of the largest safety trade shows in Western Canada. The Industrial Safety Seminar was held at Praireland Park in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Hundreds of people interested in learning more about work place safety were in attendance. The Northern Strands double booth featured an Advanced Davit Arm System for entry and retrieval applications. Below is a picture of the Davit System set up at the Industrial Safety Seminar
Many industry experts visited our booth to inquire about Northern Strands safety related divisions; Safety Training, Engineered Fall Protection, Wire Rope and Rigging and Suspended Access. One of the more popular questions was, "What training courses do you offer?" This was an excellent question!
Our current training courses include:
- Fall Arrest Training
- Crosby Rigging Seminars
- Wirelock Socketing Seminars
- First Aid and CPR training
- Tugger Safety Training
