Environmental health and safety services

Our environmental services are designed to assist you during all phases of your project.

From grassroots site risk assessments, to full development and implementation of certifiable integrated environmental health and safety (EHS) management systems, Blue Heron can provide the level of service your organisation requires.

A few of our featured services can be found on our corporate profile, but for a full list of our environmental services you can visit our website.

Environmental training courses

Our growing catalogue of environmental training courses cover a wide variety of environmental monitoring skills and reporting requirements, site and project management and auditing, as well as regulatory tools and permitting guidelines.

Our workshops range from one-hour online sessions to full-well in-person courses that cover several complementary disciplines. The courses will teach practical and situational workplace skills for newcomers in the environmental field, or those looking for an upgrade due to changes in regulations, protocols and enforcement.

Workshops also exist for management and supervisors seeking to better navigate the complexities of environmental compliance laws and regulations that beset the natural resource industry.

Our training delivery can include a variety of formats: in-field, classroom and online.

Online training courses

We encourage clients to experience the convenience of learning at your own pace from the comfort of a home office. We deliver courses in live or pre-recorded formats to groups and individuals.

Are you curious to know what environmental training can look like during Covid-19 social-distancing restrictions? We’re prepared with enhanced sanitary and social-distancing protocols to keep trainers and trainees safe during these uncertain times.

Are you seeking accreditation from a post-secondary institution? Blue Heron has partnered with Timmins’ Northern College to provide a selection of our courses, which are offered in-person or online. Our partnership with Northern College offers students additional support and resources, including opportunities for funding support to supplement registration or travel costs.

Spill prevention and containment products

Blue Heron’s online store is equipped with the latest spill prevention and containment solutions your business needs to operate safely and efficiently respond to spill events.

We also respond to requests from clients to offer a catalogue of environmental monitoring equipment for rent or sale.
