The Working on Ice Safety course is designed for personnel who conduct vocational activities on and around ice. This course is recommended for Parks Enforcement Officers, Environment Officers, Hydrometric Scientists and Conservation Authority Staff.

This online program introduces subjects that include ice formation and ice hydrology, site assessment and hazard recognition, Personal Protective Equipment, and industry-mandated safety measures. A certificate is issued on successful completion.

This course is for individuals or small groups that are required to work, play or travel on ice over lakes, ponds, and reservoirs, or rivers that are completely frozen over.

The working on ice program has been created with the emphasis on assessment and “being safe” while working around, or on frozen bodies of water.

The goal of the course is to give people practical assessment and decision making skills to determine safe versus unsafe ice coverings.
