Voice of the Construction Industry

To reduce the number of accidents and injuries in Alberta's construction industry, employers must ensure that all workers are trained in basic workplace safety. The Construction Safety Training System assists employers by offering flexible training options. CSTS equips workers with practical skills and proven prevention strategies to stay safe on the job. Thatís what makes it one of the leading programs offered.

 

Description

The Construction Safety Training System (CSTS-09) was developed by the Alberta Construction Safety Association (ACSA) and is a web-based program consisting of 15 training modules. The program is designed to provide individual workers with a solid base of knowledge about workplace safety. The emphasis is on workplace hazards and how to avoid them. Participants watch narrated video clips of construction sites and common hazards, and are guided through the correct response in each situation. Web-based training allows participants to learn at their own pace and to test their knowledge through interactive questions and scenarios.

The CSTS program is divided into 15 training modules. Each lesson includes a study session, review and test.

 

Who Should Attend

The program is intended for individual construction industry workers, especially young workers, but may also be of interest to new supervisors, joint health and safety committee members, worker health and safety representatives, and business owners or operators who wish to improve the healthy and safety knowledge in their workplace.

  • Understand the importance of safe work practices
