Title: Derek Wardle

Benefits Of Job Safety Skills

Safety Training
  • To work at the Bonnyville Swimming Pool there are
    many certifications each staff member must have.
    Mine include National Lifeguard-Pool, Water
    Safety Instructor, Standard First Aid with CPR
    Level C, Lifesaving, and CPR Instructor.
  • The three safety modules that I completed in
    school were 1210, 2210, and 3210 that helped me
    at work in many instances. This knowledge with my
    training ensured the highest quality of safety
    for all patrons at the swimming pool.
  • These safety concepts with common sense and
    precise actions reduce the risk of injury not
    only for the employees but all visitors on the

Module 1210 Personal Safety
  • Module 1210 taught me to use extreme personal
    safety precautions. This must be used when adding
    chemicals to the water in the pool.
  • The use of caustic soda helps reduce the pH level
    in the pool when it is too high. Since this
    chemical is very dangerous a full face shield and
    rubber gloves must be worn.
  • There is absolutely no reason for any worker not
    to take the time to prepare and be outfitted
    properly for contact with this chemical.

Module 2210 Workplace Safety
  • The Module 2210 focuses on workplace safety. Our
    bulletin board shows how to stay safe on the job
    site. Each person on shift passes by this
    reminder at least twenty times.
  • As well we have cards to fill out when anyone
    sees an unsafe situation and then it is given to
    the supervisor as soon as possible.
  • We receive Health and Safety magazines that help
    review various safety procedures. This is
    reinforced in our monthly in-services with CPR
    skills review and address any safety concerns.

Module 3210 Safety Management
  • In the Module of 3210 I gained knowledge in the
    area of safety management. My PPE includes the
    mandatory use of sandals because of the water
    tests, backwashes, and pump checks I perform in
    the basement of the pool.
  • All pertinent information must be documented so
    that the chlorine in the pool stays at the pH
  • In the area of engineered control there are
    guards on rotating shafts of the pumps, chlorine
    detectors, and pressure relief valves on the
  • Since there are many staff members administrative
    controls are used such as the listing of all
    procedures in the batching of chemicals.

Career Outlook
  • Since I have accomplished the basic safety
    training with these three modules and expanded my
    training at the pool I have found my area of
  • Working with boilers such as this one that heats
    the pool is a fascinating piece of equipment that
    I wish to pursue in post-secondary education. The
    area of power engineering is my choice for a
  • As well as furthering my education I know I must
    extend my knowledge of safety. I look forward to
    H2S Alive, TDG, WHIMIS, and Confined Space Entry.

  • Besides achieving safety training and work
    experience on the job I have learned that safety
    becomes as natural as eating and sleeping. A
    person must be on the look out for potentially
    dangerous situations.
  • I believe the most single important rule that
    every person should follow is stated by the
    Occupational Health and Safety Board, Safety is
    an Attitude.
