Who We Are

The BC Construction Safety Alliance (BCCSA) is a not-for-profit association that provides services to more than 52,000 construction companies employing more than 220,000 workers. We are funded by construction, plus select aggregate and ready-mixed industry who support us through a portion of their WorkSafeBC annual assessments. 

The BCCSA is governed by a Board of Directors whose members represent 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 (1) focus on injury prevention and creating or enhancing a culture of safety on construction sites; and (2) meet a diversity of needs among owners, managers, supervisors, and workers. 

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

Not-for-Profit

The BC Construction Safety Alliance is financed entirely by the BC construction and aggregate industries, and ready-mixed classification units through a small percentage of their assessment premiums collected by WorkSafeBC. Through this funding we provide the industry with health and safety services, programs, and training. 

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 voice on construction health and safety issues.
