Pipeline Construction Safety Training


The Construction Sector Council (CSC) is offering an online Pipeline Construction Safety Training (PCST) course through their website's E-Learning Centre. The CSC is committed to providing awareness for new and seasoned workers in the construction industry. IHSA has agreed to act as a distributor for the Pipeline Safety course.

As a distributor, IHSA's role is to provide a PIN number for the user to access CSC's online course. The user will visit CSC's website, enter their PIN number and go through the course. If the user completes the course successfully, the CSC will provide a certificate of completion.

A demo version of the Pipeline Safety course is available by visiting the CSC's E-Learning Centre or by visiting their homepage and clicking on the E-Learning Centre icon.

About the Course

Course Outline: This course has been designed to educate the worker on relevant Health and Safety issues by taking the worker through the entire pipeline construction process, from beginning to end.

Course Objectives: This course will provide workers with the tools to help them:

  • become aware of the health and safety requirements
  • learn how to assess hazards
  • understand basic safety requirements on a pipeline jobsite

Course Content: The course is organized into 13 lessons. You must complete the lessons in order. Each lesson has a "content" section which contains lesson information and review questions, and a "diagnostics" (or test) section, which contains the final quiz. Once you have satisfactorily completed all review questions and the final quiz, you may proceed to the next lesson. If you wish to exit the course and finish it at a later time, you can "bookmark" the place where you left off. The course takes approximately 4 - 6 hours to complete.
