Sandy Mayers Ibbitson - Health, Safety and Training Specialist

North Channel Safety Management

Sandy and her company North Channel Safety Management (NCSM) is a partner with HSPI. Sandy has been developing and leading classes for and with Louise for many years. Sandy got her start in adult teaching and learning principles from the Worker Centre in the early 80s, and has never looked back. She completed her Teacher of Adult certificate at Sault College. As a speaker at a health and safety conference, Sandy fills the room.

Sandy is a 30 year Occupational Health and Safety Specialist, with a personal commitment to injury prevention, and has taught numerous health and safety courses over her career. Sandy’s background has been in safety training and consulting and has worked with municipalities, industrial establishments, mines, and construction.  

Sandy’s knowledge of the Occupational Health and Safety Act is second to none. She remembers details like no one we know. Her talent is in being able to interpret that detail and convey it to class participants in a fun, engaging, and yet serious manner. She is always on top of the latest changes, and keeps us all informed of sometimes very small interpretations that we might miss.

HSPI has a vault full of positive evaluations, things like “best instructor I ever had”, “didn’t know health and safety could be so much fun”, “I thought this was going to be boring—was I wrong!”, “Sandy’s the best”, and “I’ll come back again if Sandy is teaching”.  Our all time favourite comment is “Sandy is a 6th degree black belt in soft skills which makes her an excellent trainer.” We all agree!
