National Health and Safety Administrator (NHSA) Program

The objective of the National Health and Safety Administrator (NHSA) program is to provide formal training for an administrator of a health and safety program, who does not possess a minimum of three years of construction field experience. The NHSA designation meets the national standard requirements and verifies that a person has met the training, practical application, and written performance measurements set out by the Canadian Federation of Construction Safety Associations (CFCSA). Certification indicates to employers that the participant has knowledge in various health and safety management skills and principles. This knowledge positions the individual to provide support in the administration of a company’s health and safety program.
