Accessibility 

WSN is committed to providing accessible services. We encourage you to voluntarily self-identify if you require any form of enhanced accessibility. Any such disclosure is confidential, in accordance with the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act. In the event that any WSN goods and services are not adequately accessible, including any forms, we ask that you describe your experience by emailing customercare@workplacesafetynorth.ca.

Cancellations

WSN does everything it can to avoid cancelling classes. Courses and appointments are only cancelled when circumstances are beyond its control, such as a major snowstorm. If it is unsafe for learners to travel to the training location, the class will be cancelled. The safety of your team and ours is of the utmost importance. In the event of a class cancellation, you will be contacted on the same day to make alternate arrangements. 

Payment, Shipping, Refunds

Workplace Safety North reserves the right to require advance payment by credit or debit card. 

Shipping is calculated at the time of your order. For shipping outside Canada additional charges may apply. All shipments are prepaid and sent via Canada Post or Purolator Courier. 

Contact us to start a refund by contacting Customer Care. The Client Care Team will contact you and ask for your order confirmation number and other contact information to verify your eligibility for a refund.

Refunds from credit card transactions can only be sent back using the original payment method. It’s not possible to send a refund to a different destination (e.g., another card or bank account).

If paying by cheque, please make it payable to:
