                             COVID-19 Service and Customer Request Response

Recognizing that no matter what crisis or situation we face, the first thing mentioned is Public Safety; ASTEC SAFETY Inc., in direct response to the COVID-19 Novel Coronavirus outbreak, and our emerging customer inquiries about how will we keep the oilfield and industrial partners, accredited and safe in the workplace, while continuing to provide economic benefit to our communities, we are releasing a Challenge Examination option for all ASTEC SAFETY branded courses.

In addition to reducing class sizes and enhancing our already rigorous cleaning/sanitizing procedures, which satisfies the largest percentage of our customer requirements, we also offer on-line/eLearning safety courses that provide student certification in a number of core industrial safety areas.

ASTEC SAFETY has been at the forefront of Ground Disturbance and Damage Prevention, both in the classroom and on-line, we have introduced new technology in our classrooms, and are recognized as a leader in the development of eLearning safety courses in Western Canada. Leveraging this proprietary technology and the many solutions that we have developed; we are now able to respond to the pressures of the COVID-19 Novel Coronavirus outbreak to further assist our customers.

We are announcing and releasing functionality, today, that will permit students holding valid and current safety tickets issued by ASTEC SAFETY Inc. in the following courses, to renew their certification for 1 year, through an on-line CHALLENGE EXAMINATION.  

The Course List eligible for the 1 year Challenge Examination is:

  • ASTEC Confined Space Entry & Monitor
  • ASTEC Confined Space Rescue
  • ASTEC Fall Protection
  • ASTEC Live Fire or Basic Fire Fighting
  • ASTEC Gas Detection & Nitrogen Awareness (Principles of Gas Detection & Monitoring)
  • ASTEC Forklift Safe Operations
  • ASTEC Skid Steer Safe Operations

NOTE: Some courses may have slightly different titles or names on the certificates, please call your ASTEC SAFETY office and let us advise you if your certificate qualifies for the Challenge Examination option.

The cost for the Challenge Examination is $55.00+GST for each certificate you wish to renew for 1 year upon successful completion of the Challenge Examination.

Call any of our ASTEC SAFETY Branches to obtain your Challenge Examination access.

Should you not have access to a personal computer, Chromebook or tablet device with suitable access to the internet, we will set up a student computer lab in each of our locations that you can utilize. Please indicate that you will require the use of the computer lab when calling to arrange your Challenge Examination.

We are actively developing and testing an Instructor Lead Virtual Classroom option to permit students to participate in ASTEC SAFETY courses from their own offices using our Interactive Dashboard technology and a suitably equipped device with access to the internet. Further details in this regard will be forthcoming by the end of the week.

On behalf of everyone at ASTEC SAFETY, stay safe and know that we will be there to assist in your industrial safety requirements in any way possible, during this difficult time for all of us.
