Hire a health and safety training professional

Employers must, under section 9 of the Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) Act, provide OHS training to employees.

In 2014, WorkSafeNB introduced the Recognized Occupational Health and Safety Training Provider Program. WorkSafeNB, in collaboration with a committee representing trainers from the private sector, developed a recognized evaluation process.

Being recognized means the training provider:

  • has met criteria determined by WorkSafeNB related to the development and delivery of the training program material (this includes following adult learning principles), and
  • the content complies with New Brunswick’s occupational health and safety legal requirements.  

Whether you hire a WorkSafeNB Recognized OHS Trainer Provider or another provider, an employer must ensure that they hire the right OHS training provider for their need. 

For example, a Recognized OHS Training Provider could have a basic fall protection course that meets WorkSafeNB’s criteria. However, the provider may not have the competency to deliver a more advanced course on how to inspect shock-absorbing lanyards or calculate free-fall distance and clearance. It is the employer’s responsibility to ensure the provider hired has the knowledge and experience to train the employees for the specific tasks.

If you’re an employer and have concerns about a recognized training provider from our list, please contact WorkSafe Services’ Program Development and Evaluation department at 506 738-4184 or toll-free 1 800 222-9775. We will work with the provider to address your concerns and re-evaluate the status, if necessary.
