How is 4S supporting employers with classroom training requirements with distance learning and blended options?
4S Consulting has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation in Ontario. Both the federal and provincial governments are making significant interventions in response to COVID-19 and these changes are in turn forcing businesses to rapidly adjust while trying to navigate the resulting financial and operational challenges.
4S Consulting is here to help.
We understand the importance of health and safety training for businesses during this time, especially when businesses are forced to run lean operations and having trained and skilled personnel is of utmost importance for business continuity.
To support businesses in this regard, 4S Consulting has commenced classroom training thanks to the persistent hard work & efforts of our 4S team from April 24, 2020.

- Reduced class sizes to maintain 2 metres between participants
- Guided equipment training without direct contact with other participants or the instructor
- Increased access to hand hygiene
- Administering health screening questionnaires prior to starting the training
- Following strict protocols on frequent cleaning and disinfection.
