Construction Safety Training System (CSTS-09) is a self-paced online course designed for those who are new to the industry or have not had formal safety training. The course fee is $65 + GST. The CSTS-09 program is broken down into modules and upon successful completion, a certificate will be issued. Certification is valid across Canada and does not expire.
Making sure that construction worksites are as safe as possible begins with providing basic safety training to all employees. CSTS-09 is the only worker-specific safety program of its kind in the province and is acknowledged industry-wide as an excellent learning tool for individuals who are either new to the construction industry or have not had formal safety training.
