Maintaining your professional designation

Professional safety designations often require members to participate in yearly career development and training opportunities to maintain their designation. Our courses and events help members develop their safety knowledge and skills, while also allowing for maintenance of their professional safety designation.

Safety Culture Project

Construction Safety Nova Scotia is working to improve safety culture throughout the industry. Our association provides quality, accessible, and affordable services to reduce time-loss claims, which in turn improves the safety culture. Since 2015 we have been researching factors that influence safety culture, engaging with organizations, analyzing the data, and providing safety culture interventions. Through our research we have found Safety Culture in Nova Scotia is unique and requires a concentrated approach focusing on outcome-orientated interventions.
