STEPS FOR LIFE 2015 – $982.50 RAISED!

Industrial Safety Trainers is proud to have taken part in the Steps for Life Walk once again on May 2, 2015! With $982.50 raised and 15 IST participants, we are proud to announce that another year has been a success! The Steps for Life Walk is an annual fundraising event organized by Threads of Life to raise awareness and support for families affected by workplace tragedies.


On Saturday May 5th, the team at Industrial Safety Trainers Inc. ‘The Bus Patrol’ raised over $600.00 by taking part in a 5km walk along the lake at Centennial Park in Barrie.

Organized by Threads of Life, a national registered charity dedicated to supporting families of workplace tragedy, the purpose of the event is to help families who have been impacted by a workplace fatality, a severe injury, or occupational disease. The walk helps raise awareness about the importance of Health and Safety in the workplace.

Industrial Safety Trainers Inc. and our friends at Northern Safety in Barrie were able to provide Mark Gelinas from Eastview Secondary School with the necessary tools to allow the students to safely work on various construction projects as part of their volunteer community hours commitment.

Students will be working on projects with Habitat for Humanity, park clean up and maintenance, and assisting with various construction projects within the community.

All of us at IST are committed to the education of our youth and as training providers for the WSIB’s Young Worker
Awareness Program, we are excited to be able to help these

If anyone is looking for some help on small construction projects, you can contact Marc Gelinas at 705-828-0369 or
