At home, work, and play.

About Safety NL


Newfoundland and Labrador Safety Council, operating as asfetynl_word has been providing safety services across the province for over 50 years. We are a non-governmental, not-for-profit organization dedicated to promoting health and safety at work, home and play.

In the past, asfetynl_word was best known provincially for its comprehensive motorcycle and driver training programs. That image has been evolving steadily as we innovate in designing and offering certified safety programs that target many facets of the industrial and commercial sector. We are the GO-TO organization for occupational health and safety training.

We offer instruction in a variety of current areas in our constantly expanding industrial climate, including forklift operation, powerline hazard, transportation of dangerous goods, supervisor training, and certification for occupational health and safety committees.

We partner with many community agencies for safety in the community through our participation in and support of such initiatives as Students Against Destructive Decision Making, the Lids for Kids Bicycle Safety Program, and Operation Lifesaver.

Our Board of Directors is comprised of volunteers dedicated to asfetynl_word being a trail blazer in the implementation of processes that will cultivate a culture of safety that will permeate the province.

All undertakings of asfetynl_word are coordinated and monitored by a highly trained and supportive leadership team based at our Mount Pearl office. The programs are delivered by a staff of highly trained and certified health and safety practitioners who deliver our safety programs to corporations, communities, and individuals throughout our province.
