Changes and Cancellations Amid COVID-19 Concern

The Newfoundland and Labrador Construction Safety Association (NLCSA) is continuing to monitor the evolving situation with Coronavirus (COVID-19) in our province and the guidelines being recommended by both the federal and provincial governments.  With your health and safety in mind, and based on this information, the NLCSA will be implementing additional protocols that will affect COR™ audits, training and walk-in member services.


Updated  March 11th, 2021

Effective March 15th, we will be resuming in person training and our priority is to accommodate those members whose training was cancelled (between Feb. 8th and March 12th, 2021). Once we have contacted those individuals, we will be accepting registrations for available offerings.  Until then, members looking to book future training are encouraged to contact us and they will be placed on a wait list. 

Based on advice from government officials and changing circumstances, the NLCSA may adjust our training schedule.  Follow us on social media or check back here for updates.  You can also sign up for our Construction Safety eNews, for regular updates.
