Welcome to Occupational Health & Educational Services

April 22, 2020

Unfortunately, due to the continued restrictions, we have cancelled most classroom training until further notice but are still able to accommodate some classroom training for small numbers upon request. 

During this time, please consider on-line training. We now have over 40 courses, including some blended learning courses, available on-line.  These can be taken as a pay-as-you-go or you can contact us for other options.
We are still open for business at this time.  Contact Mike at 902-237-9333 with any questions.
Please stay up-to-date on the Covid-19 pandemic by visiting the Nova Scotia website:

To our guests,

With growing global concerns around COVID-19 (“coronavirus”), I wanted to provide you with an update on our response to date and our commitment to you moving forward. The health, safety and well-being of our employees and guests is our top priority and we are following the lead of Canadian public health authorities at this important time. We are committed to providing a safe environment for all of our class participants.

First and foremost, I want to assure our guests that we are taking all appropriate measures to ensure our office & classrooms are safe and that we have existing plans and protocols in place to ensure they stay that way. While the Public Health Agency of Canada has assessed the current public health risk associated with coronavirus as low, we continue to monitor for developments very closely

We have implemented additional measures to ensure your safety as well as the safety of our team, including:

  • Introducing enhanced cleaning protocols, with particular focus on high traffic and high contact areas. Coronaviruses are easily eliminated by routine surface cleaning with steam, which kills 99.9% of all germs
  • Increasing communications and reminders with our guests, partners and employees on important health and safety measures
To protect yourself and others, we ask that anyone who is feeling unwell refrain from visiting us so that together we can ensure a safe and comfortable experience for everyone.

Again, we continue to monitor this situation closely and will provide ongoing updates as needed. We also encourage our guests to stay up-to-date through Canada's Public Health website.

Thank you and we look forward to welcoming you soon
