About us

Electrolab Training Systems, located in Belleville, Ontario, Canada, was founded by Mr. Norm Wilson in 1975 to serve the technical training needs of Canadian industry and educational institutions.  Now owned by Norm’s three children, Barb Tait, Don Wilson and Larry Wilson, Electrolab is proud to be a global leader in workplace safety.

In 1999, Electrolab developed (and still owns) SafeStart, the most successful safety training process in the world.  SafeStart is currently available in 30+ languages, used in over 50 countries; over 2 million people have been trained.

We continue to offer our Canadian clients the best training resources, from the world’s best producers, to help you deliver effective and efficient training. This website will give you detailed information for researching formats or on specific training topics. Give us a call for recommendations from our knowledgeable, professional account team.

Our passion is safety.  With the assistance of our employees, and a team of outstanding consultants, we are helping clients achieve world-class safety performance.  While that’s significant to the bottom line of our clients, it’s also important to the thousands of workers going home safely every day.  And because of the 24/7 skills that workers and their families develop with SafeStart, it’s also thousands of workers returning to work safely every day.

Our motivation is simple: what we do is important; too important to stop growing or to stop improving.  We are honoured to share this motivation with the safety professionals we serve.
