METI is a licensed and accredited provider of the OSSA Basic Safety Orientation Training – BSO.
The OSSA Basic Safety Orientation (BSO) Training is the pre-site access requirement for all new contract workers at participating OSSA member work sites.  This requirement applies only to NEW workers. If you already have proof of ORO and CSTS certification, you will continue to have site access.

OSSA Basic Safety Orientation (BSO) Course Learning Objectives

The learning objective of the course is to provide participants with a general awareness of critical safety initiatives found at participating OSSA Member work sites.

METI’s training is an instructor led course and is intended to replace the current OSSA Regional Orientation (ORO) and CSTS-09 programs as pre-site access requirements for the four OSSA member sites.

Upon completion of the OSSA Basic Safety Orientation Course, a worker will be able to present their certificate to any of the Oil Sands Safety Association Owner Member sites (Albian Sands Energy Inc., Canadian Natural Resources Ltd., Suncor Energy Inc., and Syncrude Canada Ltd.) as proof of completing the required training and pre-site access orientation.


Participants in the OSSA Basic Safety Orientation Course will be required to achieve 80% on the quiz in order to receive a OSSA Basic Safety Orientation Certificate.
