ROADBUILDERS SAFETY TRAINING SYSTEM (RSTS)

RSTS-laptop.jpg

The Roadbuilding and heavy construction sectors are two of the most high-risk

industries from an occupational health and safety (OHS) standpoint. As safety

is an essential component of our culture, the ARHCA has developed the

RSTS for industry, by industry, to improve employees' ability to identify

hazards, manage risk and reduce incidents.

We are excited to be launching     
this new and improved course!

The RSTS is an e-learning program that offers basic, essential safety awareness training for workers involved in the roadbuilding and heavy construction industries. It is used by companies of all sizes as an onboarding tool for new and returning workers and has been completed by over 9000 workers across Alberta and Western Canada to date. The current course is 19 modules including:

  • 7 basic modules to introduce learners to

    • OHS legislation,

    • the common hazards on a worksite and

    • the importance of hazard awareness and controls

  • 12 specialized modules providing key information on

    • industry terminology,

    • best practices and

    • safe work processes across the roadbuilding and heavy construction specialties.

The RSTS is undergoing a huge upgrade which will be released in January 2022. The course will have enhanced content for better learner engagement with the material as well as four additional modules. All 23 modules will contain top-quality videography, graphics, and animation and references to current Alberta legislation and industry best practices. More than 60 subject matter experts contributed their time and expertise to ensure that the 2022 RSTS is a best-in-class safety awareness program.
