Employees and Employers Involved in Sprinkler System Installations Invited to Participate in Survey

The Provincial Government is seeking input from employees and employers in response to an application from industry stakeholders requesting to designate the Sprinkler System Installer trade as a compulsory certified trade in Newfoundland and Labrador. Only registered apprentices and journeypersons may work in a compulsory certified trade.

To participate in the survey or seek more information please email compulsorycertifications@gov.nl.ca. Surveys will be administered from February 11, 2019, to March 1, 2019.

The general public is also invited to provide input through the email address above.

“The input we receive from industry representatives, employees, apprentices, journeypersons, employers and the public will help determine if compulsory certification is required. Should compulsory certification be recommended, support will be provided to all employees and employers currently engaged in this field.”
