Saskatchewan Safety Special Project Credit

Career Safety Education is the first program of its kind in North America. It provides universal access to completely FREE safety training for all youth in Saskatchewan. By working together with generous partners, we are able to deliver the training to any youth between 14 and 21 years of age.

The goal of Career Safety Education is to increase the knowledge of safety in Saskatchewan youth through education. Following the completion of Career Safety Education, students will apply their knowledge to prevent injuries at work or at home.

The online components are specifically designed by industry safety experts to address the most common injuries to new workers in their respective fields. The online components can be complimented with practical on-site training if community sponsorship is available.

To complete Career Safety Education, four safety courses must be completed.

The 4 compulsory courses are:

  1. Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS 2015) – Youth Specific Online
  2. Young Worker Readiness Certificate Course
  3. Mental Health Wellness Training
  4. And, depending on your career interest, you choose one of the following industry orientations:
  • Agriculture: OATS (Online Agriculture Training System)
  • Heavy Construction: RSTS (Roadbuilders Safety Training System Online)
  • Construction and Trades: SCOT (Safety Construction Orientation Training)
  • Healthcare: WAVE (Workplace Assessment and Violence Education)

​More online courses will be added to the list as they become available.
