About Us

Back to Home Page


The BC Construction Safety Alliance is a not-for-profit association that provides services to over 40,000 construction companies employing over 180,000 workers. We are funded by construction, plus select aggregate and ready-mixed industry who pay for us through a portion of their WorkSafeBC annual assessments.

The BCCSA is governed by a Board of Directors whose members are representative of all areas of the industry: residential; road building; aggregate; ready-mixed; industrial, commercial, institutional, and heavy construction. Worker safety is our number one priority. To that end, we offer a range of services that (a) focus on injury prevention and creating or enhancing a culture of safety on construction sites; and (b) meet a diversity of needs among owners, managers, supervisors, and workers.

As a safety association recognized by WorkSafeBC, we promote and develop workplace health and safety in compliance with WorkSafeBC’s regulations and guidelines.  The BCCSA also acts as the construction industry’s apolitical spokesperson on construction health and safety issues.

The BCCSA is part of the Canadian Federation of Construction Safety Associations (CFCSA).

Non-Profit

The BC Construction Safety Alliance is financed entirely by the BC construction and aggregate industries, and the ready-mixed classification units through a small percent of their assessment premiums collected by WorkSafeBC.

As a safety association recognized by WorkSafeBC, we promote and develop workplace health and safety in compliance with WorkSafeBC’s regulations and guidelines. The BCCSA also acts as the construction industry’s apolitical spokesperson on construction health and safety issues.

As a non-profit organization, the BCCSA works from a percentage of funding from base assessments paid annually to WorkSafeBC. Through this funding we provide the industry with health and safety services, programs, and training.

History

Operating since 2001, the CSN provided health and safety services to BC’s road builders and heavy construction employers. In 2004 the CSABC was formed to service the needs of a broad base of construction employers. On July 1, 2010 the two previous associations were amalgamated and became the BCCSA, BC’s primary construction health and safety association.
