We are experts at what we do, our trade. We are not however, experts on the technical side of safety, aka the paperwork and procedures. We required COR for our teams safety and our clients. So we called an expert in the field. We called Shelly. Shelly consulted with us, taught us the process and procedures involved and directed us to becoming a COR certified company. Her service provided us with an organized system that we were able to implement with ease. After the original setup, Shelly returns quarterly to review and score our submittals, make it nice and easy.
My advice to companies who are in the situation I was: stick to what you are good at. Hire an expert for the things you are not.
When I first decided to become COR certified, I felt very overwhelmed by the paperwork. Until I talked to Shelly! Shelly provides the knowledge of getting setup to be COR certified, and really takes the stress out of the process! She explains what steps to take and how to do them well. Safety Shelly is friendly and professional. I have appreciated her positive attitude towards following the safety regulations!
Lots of contractors say its so costly to be COR certified, I say you can’t afford not to be! Safety is the law.
Being a small General Contractor, it was clear to me early on in the process that we would need a specialized safety program designed to suite our unique company. Without direction, we did very little to advance our SECOR aspirations. Seeing our lack of progress, I then contracted the services of Safety With Shelly. Shelly designed a safety program for our specific company addressing our unique needs. The program had clear direction and was easy to follow. Shelly was readily available for our many questions early on and continued to give knowledgeable and concise direction throughout the process. I am proud to say that Aztec Builders Ltd. is now SECOR Certified in the Province of Manitoba. In closing, this process would have been very difficult if not unattainable without Safety With Shelly’s direction and guidance.
Shelly is a knowledgeable and passionate trainer. Our company had some work out of province that required specific jurisdictional training. The training was very hard to come by and we were at our wits end trying to find someone to train and evaluate our workers. Shelly had done a COR audit for me a few years ago and when it was suggested to me she could provide the specific training we needed I said “Great! Our experience with Shelly last time was very good. “ She did not disappoint. The training material was top shelf and her style makes it easy for our workers to understand. She traveled, sometimes on short notice, many hours to our out of province sites to evaluate and deliver more training as our workforce grew. Because she grew up in the heavy construction industry the workers can see she knows what she is talking about because she has done it. We could not have gotten the job done without the quality training Shelly provided. We would definitely use Shelly again.
Shelly is very professional, prompt, convenient and she is very knowledgeable and goes above and beyond in her services! She’s helped us with all our company safety needs and we would recommend Safety with Shelly to any business, big or small!
Working with Shelly has been one of the most incredible experiences. Starting a COR Certification program is very challenging and of course time consuming . She has been there with her expertise and knowledge to assist us in keeping our everyday safety in place and documented . Audit preparation and Audits are much easier now as she keeps us focused in the right direction.In closing , I would like to say our investment with Safety with Shelly is a positive investment today and moving forward in business !!!
Shelly has been a reliable resource to the Worksafely program at the Manitoba Heavy Construction Association for many years.

Shelly is very competent in regards to the Certificate of Recognition (COR™) program and its elements.
Proficient, skilled and knowledgeable are just a few words that describe Shelly’s aptitude in the field of Occupational Health and Safety.
The Heavy Equipment Operator Training course was very interesting for all the trainees. Almost all the 12 trainees are now employed in the community within the O & M or Winter Roads department. The few that are not employed have had opportunity for work outside of the community. The training was very applicable and hands on, they learnt a lot. We have requested another HEO training session as there are now more people within the community who would like this opportunity from talking to the others. I would recommend this training to all of the Northern communities – it opens up doors for our people, is cost effective and the best part is the training happens within our community so its more hands on and highly successful.
We used Safety with Shelly – CONSULTING SERVICES Ltd. in the fall of 2016 to train 12 community members in Heavy Equipment Operator Training. The trainees learnt a lot, and the training was high quality. They now know how to operate and are not afraid of the big machines. We just need to tell them what to do and they can go and do it. This program focuses a lot on how to properly check and maintain your equipment – this is the main thing! This equipment pays your wage and if its sitting you are not working and making money. Thank you to the band for funding this – we now have knowledgeable, competent and trained operators within our community and we do not need to look elsewhere for workers. This helps keep our community sustainable and proactive. Great job trainers!
Thank you very much 🙂 I came into this training program knowing very little about the machines. I’ve been working on a construction project and the information taught made a lot more sense and I can relate it back to my worksite. I have confidence now, knowing I can go onto a worksite and use the knowledge that I’ve gained. Really enjoyed the course!
I recently took the Heavy Equipment Operator Training Certification Program with Shelly, Craig and Kenton. I loved the course! The content was excellent, informative, and interesting. I really enjoyed learning how to run the machines. The instructors were very informative and experienced!
I am the Safety Coordinator for Al Meisner Ltd. We started our company in the mid 1950’s and the industry has changed drastically since then. When I started working with our family business 13 years ago I didn’t expect to be taking on a safety role and to be honest I had no idea where to start. That is where Safety with Shelly – CONSULTING SERVICES Ltd. came in. Over the years she has helped us tremendously. She has guided not only me but our whole company with her expertise. We now have the knowledge we need to keep up with our COR Safety Program and the aspects that can change from time to time. From helping us start our safety manual to an organized filing system that I can use to keep all my files separate and in proper order, Shelly has been there each step of the way. Thank you Shelly for the guidance you have provided us and continue to provide for us at Al Meisner Ltd.!
I recently finished taking Heavy Equipment Operator Training with Safety with Shelly – CONSULTING SERVICES Ltd. I have taken this training before with another firm and didn’t get all the information I needed. This training was more interesting and gave me more information. I really enjoyed it!
Very interesting and valuable training information. I enjoyed the machines and learned a lot more than I expected. Overall, this program and trainers are excellent. Thank you for the opportunity and for bringing this program to our community!
The program and trainers were very professional and the instructor was excellent. Course content was clear and concise. I really enjoyed this course very much. Shelly’s presentations were very good and Craig/Kenton were excellent trainers. Thank you guys!
Excellent presenter & trainers!!
Kenton, Craig & Shelly are very understanding instructors. Thank you for teaching me more knowledge and better understanding of the equipment. I learnt better techniques right to the pin point. Thanks!
This program is an eye opener and teaches you to think ahead. Safety first is essential when it comes to operating heavy equipment. This gave me more hours and taught me better operating techniques. I’m glad i got more hands on experience on all heavy equipment!
I have learned a lot in this training course and now feel ready to find a position operating heavy equipment. I would have liked to spend more time learning because of the instructors/trainers – they are very knowledgeable! I have enjoyed doing the training course very much. Thanks!
Overall this training program is the best start for my future career. I have learned how to operate safely and it taught me well. I would like to thank Craig & Kenton for allowing me to acheive my goals as teh operator. Without them I would not have learned how to operate heavy equipment. You guys are the best trainers that have ever taught! Masi chok nacha. Thank you very much.
Best training course I ever took! Good trainers, good communication. Looking forward to start a job in this career now. Thank you Shelly, Kenton & Craig. Good job! Thanks.
I liked this course very much, way better then the simulator training I took for two months. This course is good, better communication and you actually get hands on experience on the heavy equipment. I learned how to cut and operate. I am looking forward to starting a job somewhere now as a Heavy Equipment Operator.
Safety is vital for any business, and having a practical and effective plan was important for us. The paperwork and legislation involved however is another story, and after attempting several times I found myself frustrated and overwhelmed.
We got a recommendation for Safety with Shelly – CONSULTING SERVICES Ltd., and we were not disappointed. In no time she had a plan tailored to our business, that was efficient and organized, and gave us the confidence to pass our external audit with ease.
Good job! So proud of the trainees. When they completed the HEO training session they were walking with their heads held high and proud. You got some positive remarks, thank you so much. We will definitely be looking at more training in the future – they learnt so much and we got a nice project done in the community. Win win!
Thank you to Safety with Shelly – CONSULTING SERVICES Ltd. for an awesome training session! I seen first hand how much the guys learnt on the heavy equipment. Some had never operated before and the skills they learnt in this short time was surprising. But even more surprising was the skills and knowledge that the more experienced operators learnt, the trainers have so much knowledge and experiences to share. We were able to build a road to our cemetery during this training which was a huge blessing to our community. Great job SwS, we look forward to more training in the future!
I really liked taking this training program. I’ve been running equipment for over 25 years but nowadays if I ask for a job in the mine sites they ask for this training to be completed first. I really enjoyed this course, it helps me find employment and work safe. I learnt lots of new things that I didn’t know, thank you to the trainers!
I like operating the dozer the best. I got to experience heavy equipment operating, which I am thankful for. I learnt lots on the loader and dozer. This is the first time I have taken any type of training like this, and I would like to continue to learn more. Most importantly I had fun operating and learning. I had an awesome few weeks with these trainers. Hope to see you guys again soon!
I really liked this training! The instructors are very great at teaching and hands on training. I learned how to do proper circle checks, I really enjoyed my few weeks with these guys!! They are so experienced they can answer all of my questions!
What I liked the most about this program was driving these pieces of heavy equipment. I have not ever driven these machines before and it was a good experience. The safety was important to learn in the classroom first in order to know how to operate safely. The instructors were amazing, I’ve asked lots of questions and they had answers for everything. At the end, it was fun learning everything!
I liked how they taught us about controlling the machines. I learned how to control and operate the machines and how to safely drive. The training course was really fun and informative. We got to move snow around the community and work on the roads. I am going to be looking for a job in this field as soon as I receive my certificate!
I liked the loader the most. The instructors were awesome!! I’ve learned a lot in this training course, more then I thought I would have. I have not been in a training program before like this one, I would recommend anyone interested in this field to take it. I had a really good time with these guys, the instructors were great!
I liked and enjoyed every piece of equipment, but most of all I enjoyed operating the loader. There is nothing I didn’t like about this course! I learned how to operate 4 pieces of equipment – dozer, loader, backhoe and grader. Plus I learned from my mistakes. I now know how to use the boom in the backhoe but need to get some more hours to become even better. I have never taken a program like this before, this is my first time. I definitely recommend it! Most of all, I had SO MUCH FUN in this program!
We recently finished a Heavy Equipment Operator Training session with SwSCSLtd. The trainees learnt a lot and are all eager to apply for jobs in the local mining and construction industry. The training was very professional and the trainers knew a lot about heavy equipment. They worked very well with our people. This is our second HEOT session and most of the previous trainees have found jobs. We look forward to having these trainers back for level 2 HEOT!
I learned a lot in this course. Our trainer was patient with us and gave good tips on how to improve our operating techniques. I liked that I got to learn on my own, and was trusted. I had lots of FUN!!! Great team. I would tell everyone to take this training course.
The best training ever, I learned a lot of new tips and how to work each and every machine. But most of all we worked together as a team and made friends. I’ve always wanted to change career paths and I’m glad I signed up for this training. Best trainers!!
I really enjoyed the hands on aspect of training with all the practical hours and one week of theory because I feel you learn better hands on then sitting in class. I come away from this course a confident operator thanks to the very knowledgeable trainers. I enjoyed every minute and have no dislikes whatsoever!!
I enjoyed the program very much. Learning machines I’ve never run before was an excellent experience. I felt the training was spot on and I wish I could stay longer to better learn my understanding of job-sites and tasks. I would recommend this class to anyone seeking a change in their life and wanna do something as cool as I got the opportunity to do! Thank you very much.
Side note – I got hired shortly after I completed my training and got the chance to work alongside some other trainees that took a different program. I had so much more seat time and knowledge then they did, and I lasted on the job and they didn’t. I am truly grateful that I gave this course a try because these trainers know what the industry is looking for and set you up to succeed on a job-site!
The content of materials, videos stressed safety, safety, safety while operating the various machines. I liked all the content and learned so much and gained so much confidence and can easily look at others to learn from and ask questions. I have never taken a course like this before but heard of others, but I say this program provides so much more and I will gladly refer future students. The hands on operating is so much confidence building. The instructors are AMAZING, knowledgeable and patient with us. I loved this training course and will miss everyone. We came in as strangers with a passion to learn and left life long friends.
Overall I enjoyed the whole course. I am an experienced operator and I still learned tips and tricks from the trainers. These trainers are very experienced in industry and pass on that knowledge to us. I highly recommend this training course and I definitely enjoyed it!
I really liked everything about this course. There was nothing I didn’t enjoy or like. I have taken a course like this before with a different training provider and this one is a lot better! I have no recommendations to improve the course, the trainers are excellent and know so much about heavy equipment. I had a lot of fun!
I loved this course. I learned a lot of new things, and I am an experienced operator! Everything was awesome. I had fun and made friends and that was the best part. I would recommend anyone to take this training course. Thank you!
I really liked this training program and to see different faces on the machines. Our training was when it was colder outside so we had some issues with the equipment and the trainers knew exactly what to do and how to get everything running. I learned specific maintenance things like how to fill the gear oil up on the loader and many more valuable things, this is an important part of training especially in the North. All went well and I have no recommendations to improve. I had lots of fun with the trainees!
I liked the whole course it was very informing. I learned and gained a lot of experience. There is nothing I didn’t like, it was all useful to me. I learned how to pre-check machines, and also more about toolbox talks and FLRA’s. I now know more about whats needed in the COR Safety Program as well. I was taught how to operate and control the machines in a safe way. I have not taken a course like this before but I recommend all operators to take it – experienced or non experienced! Everyone in our class learnt so much. I had fun, and the course was very relevant and useful.
The part of the course that I liked the most was all the hands on training. I learned how to check the machines properly, maintaining them also. I have not taken a program like this and it was a good program. I learned lots and I would take it again just to learn more! The training was fun and I had a good time.
I enjoyed the whole program and I learned how to operate the grader and now I enjoy operating all the heavy equipment that is in my community. I really enjoyed this training and had fun with my fellow trainees and trainers!
I liked this training and learning how to operate the machines. I learned how to check the oils in the engine, the gauges, etc. I really enjoyed driving the rock truck, the loader and the backhoe taking brush to the dump. Overall I learned a lot of things I didn’t know and I had fun taking this training. I feel like I can now work safely with other workers around Heavy Equipment. Thanks for teaching me!
I loved the course! I liked loading the rock truck with the loader and liked all the Heavy Equipment training. The best part was learning things I didn’t know about the heavy equipment and learning safety for the crew and myself. I would love to learn more in the future, these trainers were great.
This won’t be the last training that we have, we will utilize your company for other trainings when we can. Thank you to SwSCSLtd. This is a great training program, we are proud for our people to have taken it! We now have more trained operators and will hire a few graduates of this program for our winter road contract. These guys worked in the elements and persevered in not the best weather. The best part is that we got some small projects in the community worked on while doing this training, its a win win. I am proud of the trainees and very thankful to Shelly and Craig for bringing this program to our community!
