Construction Safety Nova Scotia is committed to supporting young workers in the construction industry with quality, accessible, and affordable programs and services. We are working to increase the capacity for youth in the construction industry and lower injury and incident rates in the youth sector.

Construction Entry-Level Training (CELT) is a FREE, comprehensive workplace training program offered to participants looking to gain knowledge of their rights, duties, and responsibilities of workplace safety. CELT teaches you how to identify hazards, stay safe at work, and how to apply these learnings during your work day. CELT can be accessed online 24/7.

If you are a youth, teacher, youth worker, or community service worker who would like to register for CELT, please contact CSNS at or 902-468-6696/1-800-971-3888.


Canadian law requires that any person exposed to hazardous materials in the workplace must be trained in Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS). We offer FREE WHMIS training for youth participants of our programs and partnerships. Each participant can learn about safety data sheets, labels, and responsibilities for safely using, storing, and disposing of hazardous products.

If you’re a student who would like to take WHMIS for free or if you would like to register your students, please contact: or call us at 902-468-6696 / 1-800-971-3888.
