Safety & Workplace Training

Workplace injuries occur every day. That’s why all BFY participants are required to complete a two-week 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, OH&S, First Aid/CPR prior to arriving at NSCC
  • NSCC Construction Safety Awareness Certificates, which include Fall Protection, Scaffolding, Electricity, Confined Spaces, Traffic Control, Tool Box ID, Hand & Power Tools, Documents/Drawings, Trades Match and more
  • Construction Safety Nova Scotia certificates in Fall Arrest Worker & Scaffolding Awareness
  • CANS administered Workplace Expectations
