Important changes to the NCSO designation

ncso_acsa_v2_no_acronymWe are excited to be rolling out the NCSO changes—based on the feedback received from our community of safety practitioners. Coupling your feedback with collaborative work throughout the Canadian Federation of Construction Safety Associations (CFCSA), we have developed a new standard for the NCSO designation.

Effective July 1st 2017, all new registrants in the NCSO program will fall under the new standard. This new standard aims to strengthen the NCSO designation, making it more credible while allowing ease of transferability amongst other provinces.

By pursuing this new standard, and achieving an ‘Active’ NCSO status, you are showing commitment to continual improvement and professional development, which after all, is the foundation of health and safety management.

Included in the new standard are new course and maintenance requirements and a closed book final exam. Download this helpful Information Sheet for further details as well as this Frequently Asked Questions document to help cover any questions you may have about these changes.
