Grounds Operations and Maintenance

Monday, April 30 to Friday, May 4, 2018, University of Guelph, Guelph, ON - Google Map

This course is designed for entry level (seasonal) practitioners who are seeking employment in the recreation facility industry, or who have current duties that include grounds maintenance but have had no formal training to assist in their ability to prove competency. Building on the required prerequisite of having a strong understanding of Ontario health and safety laws, this course will explore the known risks, hazards and industry best practices associated with grounds work. Given that it is recommended that participants have a reasonable understanding of Ontario’s health and safety laws and WHMIS prior to taking this course, participants may wish to complete ORFA’s Legal I or PSHSA’s Health and Safety two day course.

Personal Protective Equipment Required: Participants attending this course must supply and wear their own CSA-approved footwear suitable for an outdoor grounds environment. No exceptions.

Instructor: Jay Kivell, Jay Kivell and Associates Horticultural, Parks and Recreation Consultants
