Hire a health and safety training professional

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

In 2014, WorkSafeNB introduced the Recognized Occupational Health and Safety Training Provider Program for in-person training in collaboration with a committee representing trainers from the private sector. To be recognized by WorkSafeNB, the training provider must have completed the recognized evaluation process.

To become a WorkSafeNB Recognized OHS Training Provider, the training provider must demonstrate:

  • They have met WorkSafeNB’s criteria for the development and delivery of the training program material (this includes following adult learning principles)
  • Their training content complies with New Brunswick’s Occupational Health and Safety Act and Regulations

Please note that OHS training providers who are not WorkSafeNB Recognized OHS Training Providers, are not necessarily lacking in skill or expertise, they simply may not have  applied to be recognized. 

As an employer, whether you hire a WorkSafeNB Recognized OHS Trainer Provider or another provider, you must be sure to hire the right OHS training provider for your specific needs. 

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 they are assigned.

If you have concerns about a WorkSafeNB Recognized OHS Training Provider, 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 their recognition status, if necessary.
