WorkSafeNB is committed to helping build healthy and safe workplaces in our province. Because education is key to that goal, we have developed e-courses, available free to any worker or employer in New Brunswick.
These online courses are effective as a stand-alone resource or can be combined with classroom learning as a blended option for the Joint Health and Safety Committee (JHSC) Educational Training Program, mandatory for JHSC members and health and safety representatives. This blended learning option is equivalent to the traditional three full days of learning.
WorkSafeNB is now approving external providers to deliver JHSC training workshops. As there are many reputable and knowledgeable agencies that can deliver health and safety training, we will focus our resources and services to work more directly with our province’s workplaces.
