CARLYLE - Recently the Carlyle Happy Gang building was home to a Red Cross first aid course and the Observer had the opportunity to talk with course instructor Desmond Bilsky.  

Bilsky is employed by Hutt’s Trucking Ltd. of Lampman as their health, safety and environment employee, and teaches diversified safety courses in southeast Saskatchewan.   

Last week, 15 employees from various businesses, most notably the Southern Plains Co-op, attended the Red Cross First Aid and CPR training in Carlyle. Said Bilsky: “I have been the Hutt’s Trucking health, safety and environmental co-ordinator for the past four years. We conduct regular safety training for regular retail businesses, daycares, and the oilfield. First Aid, CPR, H2S (hydrogen sulphide), fire safety and many other courses are all offered in many different formats.”  

Added Charlotte Halabuza of the Southern Plains Co-op administration department in Estevan, “We appreciate the services and safety courses offered by Hutt’s. Occupational Health and Safety requires that a high percentage of employees must obtain their basic first aid training. The blended courses of online learning together with practical training offered by Desmond and Hutt’s Trucking fits the bill.”
