Building upon ICS foundational courses, the Safety Officer course provides government and private industry emergency responders with a robust understanding of the duties, responsibilities, and capabilities of an effective Safety Officer (SOFR) on an Incident Management Team (IMT). These responsibilities fall into two categories:

  1. Responding to the incident and the safety needs of the incident, and
  2. Effectively fulfilling the position responsibilities of a Safety Officer on an Incident Management Team.

This course is an instructor-led training that supports learning through discussion, lecture, and active participation in multiple exercises that provides a realistic, hands-on approach to mastering the skills required of a Safety Officer.

Please Note: 75% of funding for the course fees as a rebate to support professional development and safety within organizations. Please contact contactus@esintl.ca or 1-506-333-2555 for more information, restrictions apply.
