COVID-19 Update

Service Changes

Workplace Safety & Wellness Solutions will be suspending in-person training for the time being.  Please stay tuned for further updates. 

We are making an effort to protect our most vulnerable; being a part of the collective Canadian community that protects its neighbours and ends the spread COVID-19 as soon as possible. 

In the interim, call or e-mail– we are still here to help.  Customized online training is available.



Keeping our teens safe

We believe that work is important education outside of school.  It allows confidence to be built with all of our kids, who will be our future workforce.  

As parents, we invest a lot of ourselves into our kids' education but what about their safety at work?  

At Safe To Work we are excited to offer this unique program for young workers that helps to prepare teens for work.  We help your kids build a more attractive first resume and provide them with health and safety training that all employers require under law.  This is their head start!




We are here to help

Getting your first job may not be easy.  Statistically, landing a job is at least twice as hard as it is later on in life.  According to Statistics Canada (Labour Force Survey 2018), 15 to 24 year old's have the highest rate of unemployment than any other age group.

You want to get a job but how do you build your resume with no history of experience or training?
