HISTORY of NBCSA
 
Our own industry funded Construction Safety Training
association has finally become a reality.
 

It was a six year struggle to establish the New Brunswick Construction Safety Association (NBCSA), making us one of the last three provinces in Canada to have its own construction safety training association. However, several years prior to our formal establishment, the founding committee of NBCSA was (and remains) active in the Canadian Federation of Construction Safety Associations. This is a national body working to achieve safety training course standards, cooperative recognition of each provincial association's "Certificates of Recognition" and worker's course certificates across the country.

Following initial meetings with CANB, NB Road Builders, NB Home Builders, Atlantic Provinces Ready Mix Concrete Association and Labour representatives, all agreed the construction industry should fund, develop, and set the standard for its own construction safety training. This training is to be made available at the lowest possible cost to all construction workers in the province. The agreement to form the NB Construction Safety Association was born.

An agreement was reached with WorkSafeNB for funding of the association. A levy sufficient to fund a portion of the Association’s overhead has been put in place. Any company that pay’s WorkSafeNB under 4000 group of codes that are related to the construction industry are automatically members of NBCSA. With this levy in place NBCSA is able to offer courses to its membership at or near cost.

All of our courses are reviewed by WorkSafeNB to ensure they meet the Act and Regulations for New Brunswick.
