History of SafetyNL

SafetyNL, formerly the Newfoundland and Labrador Safety Council, has been providing safety services across the province for over 60 years. We are a non-governmental, not-for-profit organization dedicated to promoting health and safety at work, home and play.

In the past, SafetyNL is 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 now the go-to organization for occupational health and safety training.

We have the resources and personnel to offer instruction in a variety of current areas in our constantly expanding industrial climate, including forklift operation, 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 dedicated people whose goal is to cultivate a culture of safety that will permeate the province. All undertakings of SafetyNL are coordinated and monitored by a highly trained and supportive leadership team based at our Mt. Pearl office. The programs are delivered by highly trained staff and certified health and safety practitioners who deliver our safety programs to corporations, communities, and individuals throughout our province.
