Giving Youth a Safe Start

Our SafeGen program offers three free safety courses for youth:

·        HCS3000 – Workplace Safety Systems

·        HCS3010 – Workplace Safety Practices

·        AGR3000 – Agriculture Safety

Students will learn the fundamentals of workplace safety and earn one credit for each completed course. Our courses can be taught in class by you, their instructor, or delivered online via our easy-to-use learning management system. The online system is self-marking and self-paced for ease of use for both teachers and students. These accredited high school courses are updated with WHMIS 2015 information, easy to understand, and perfect for youth entering the workforce.

Our course offerings also include Mental Health in the Workplace. The course helps youth define what mental health is, and understand how stressors and anxiety can affect workplace performance and safety. *Please note – this course is not accredited, and offered online only.

Registering is easy! Instructors can fill out the form at the link below and we’ll be in touch shortly with instructions for registering students. Give your students a safe start!
