At the CWB’s Office of Public Safety, we believe that compliance to both the National and Provincial Building Codes and welding certification requirements are the basis for a strong, viable and safety conscience Canadian welding industry.
With this in mind, the Office of Public Safety has initiated a new CWB Welding Specialist Mark program. This unique initiative’s primary objective is to provide a visible identifier of a welding professional’s knowledge of basic welding fundamentals, CSA welding standards and how they support the protection of public safety. The CWB Welding Specialist Mark program has also been designed to increase knowledge of welding professionals around the link between the National/Provinical Building Code of Canada, CSA design and product standards and their relationship to the CSA welding certification programs in Canada.
Welding specialists play a significant role within organizations or as individual consultants when it comes to ensuring that CSA welding certification programs are in place where required. Individuals meeting the requirements for the CWB Welding Specialist Mark will be permitted to use their Mark on designated marketing materials to communicate their proven knowledge and their achievement of successfully becoming a CWB Welding Specialist.
