Safety & Workplace Training

Workplace injuries occur every day. That’s why all BFY participants are required to complete a six-day safety training program with NSCC faculty and Construction Safety Nova Scotia. After completing the course, students receive an NSCC Construction Safety Awareness Certificate and are ready to get to work! This training could cost you hundreds of dollars down the road if you were to do it on your own – as a BFY student, you will receive this training at no cost.

  • Online Training in WHMIS and OH&S
  • NSCC Construction Safety Awareness Certificates, which include training in Fall Protection, Eye Safety, Shop Skills, Working around Heavy Equipment, Tool ID, Introduction to Hand Tools, and more.
  • Construction Safety Nova Scotia certificates in Fall Protection Basic & Hazard Identification
  • CANS administered Workplace Expectations
