Hot Zone Training Consultants has a creative way of making a point. At the Health and Safety Canada 2008 trade show, the Cambridge, Ont.-based training firm featured two young men with facial prosthetics that show burnt faces. Hot Zone’s Peter White says part of what his company offers is integrating realistic types of injuries into the actual training programs. White says the company has just opened a new training facility in Cambridge to complement its on-site training for customers. The new training school includes a confined space rescue simulator, where clients can come in and practice vertical and horizontal rescues, he says.
