Residential Construction Safety Program

The Central Nova Board of the Nova Scotia Home Builders’ Association, at the May 27, 2014 Board meeting, unanimously passed a resolution that would require builders, renovators and sub-trade members of the Central Nova local to complete the Residential Construction Safety Program byOctober 31, 2015. This is in line with the current emphasis on safety in the workplace and the feeling was it is better for Central Nova to be proactive than have regulations and training imposed on members by outside organizations.
The following are the required courses for builders, renovators and sub-trade members:
Emergency First Aid                            1 - day             
Principles of Loss Control                   1 - day             
Fall Protection - Basic Awareness      1 - day             

Online: Workplace Hazardous Material Information System (WHMIS)
Please see the following website for more information on these courses:
