From Polaris ATVs and Ranger/RZR Utility Vehicles to Equipment Rentals and Sales, WesternOne Does It All on Vancouver Island!

Choosing the Right Tool for the Right Job Saves Time and Money

Playing it safe on the job site includes choosing the right tool or equipment for the task at hand. Making the wrong choice can cause serious injury and property damage; a search for "fails" on the Internet yields a plethora of videos showcasing people using tools and equipment that are clearly unsuitable for the job. Some online favourites feature a large forklift being used to lift a smaller one, that in turn is used to lift and place another piece of equipment. Yet another depicts a car being held in the air by two forklifts, one on either side, with a worker standing underneath!

While these videos may elicit a chuckle, it's sobering to see people putting their safety at risk. In some cases, cost and availability are the mitigating factors behind the wrong equipment choice. But when you consider the possibility of suffering injury or disability is using the wrong tool worth the risk? Taking time to obtain the right tools and equipment, and training people to use them properly, will save time, money, and — most importantly — lives. If you don't have the resources needed for the job, borrow from a friend, hire a professional, or rent. When you become an Internet sensation, make sure it's for the right reasons!

Equipment Rentals and Sales From Western One

WesternOne is focused on customer satisfaction and the top-quality operating condition of its equipment. All equipment is kept in peak operating condition by WesternOne's certified, factory-trained union mechanics and technicians.

WesternOne Simplifies WorkSafe BC's Forklift Training Regulations With IVES Operator Certification Training

Are you confused by BC's regulations for forklift training and certification? You're not alone.

In simple terms, WorkSafe BC regulations state that employers must provide forklift training for employees. The actual guidelines are more complicated, however, so we've summarized them for you here. (If you prefer to read the regulatory information in its entirety, refer to OHS Section 16, Mobile Equipment and CSA Standard B335-94, Industrial Lift Truck Operator Training or click here.)

Section 16.4: Competency of Operators

1. A person must not operate mobile equipment unless the person:
(a) has received adequate instruction in the safe use of the equipment.

Section 16.7: Standards

(j) Lift Truck Operator training: CSA Standard B335-94, Industrial Lift Truck Operator Training

CSA Standard 7.1.1: Frequency of Courses

Refresher courses shall be held:
(a) at intervals not exceeding two years; or
(b) in case of accident or incidents attributable to operator error.

In a nutshell, a license is not required. However, you must ensure that your employees have been trained to current standards and have the documentation on hand to prove it.

To make your life easier, WesternOne now offers IVES Operator Certification Training that includes theory, practical training, and evaluation. The training is a win-win for both employer and employee. When an employee successfully completes the training, he or she receives a certificate and wallet card. The employer, in turn, receives copies of all documentation, including theory and practical test records. To find out more, call Greg Phelps, IVES Certified Trainer, at 250.667.0665 or WesternOne in Courtenay at 250.331.0748.

Create a Dry Job Site With the Quest PowerDry 4000 Pro, Available at WesternOne in Courtenay

Vancouver Island residents know that the green landscape in which we live means that our west coast climate is sometimes a little damp. The moisture and humidity that render our landscape so lush can also cause problems with products affected by high moisture levels.

Humidity can wreak havoc when building a house, installing hardwood floors, prepping drywall, or building cabinets. A dry job site can save money and avoid humidity-related problems such as checking or shrinkage. It can even prevent or eliminate mold. So, before the insulation goes in and the drywall goes up, doesn't it make sense to start with a moisture-free work site?

Dehumidifiers Are a Great Solution

WesternOne in Courtenay carries the perfect solution for a wet work environment: the Quest PowerDry 4000 Pro. This large-capacity, stainless-steel dehumidifier offers a perfect combination of high-performance and portability. Capable of removing an astounding 176 pints of water a day, the Quest PowerDry 4000's multiple ducting options allow for ducting both intake and processed air, giving you amazing flexibility on any job site. Multiple ducting also makes it easy to combine the unit with a HEPA air scrubber, air conditioner, or desiccant dehumidifier.

Great Rental Options and Rates

The Quest PowerDry 4000 Pro is available for daily, weekly, or monthly rental from WesternOne's Courtenay location on Moray Avenue. To find out more, call Greg Phelps at 250.667.0665 or WesternOne in Courtenay at 250.331.0748.
