About the CCSA
Who We Are
The CCSA is a unique organization that provides industry-specific health and safety training to the Alberta continuing care sector. Taking an unbiased approach, we are able to give the industry and the public facts, data and safety alerts regarding employee health and safety. By assisting members in implementing health and safety training programs, we aim to lower incidences of workplace injury.
What We Offer
The CCSA enables employers to:
- save on WCB premiums
- reduce injury costs
- increase efficiency
- improve the overall long-term well being of employees
The CCSA offers health care consulting and forms professional relationships with continuing care organizations. Supporting the creation of strong programs that promote health, safety, and wellness for employees is our ultimate goal.
The CCSA works in partnership with WCB Alberta and Alberta Human Services to manage the Certificate of Recognition (COR) and Partners in Injury Reduction (PIR) programs for the continuing care and seniors supportive living industries in Alberta. Our safety programs are funded through membership fees, low training course fees, and an industry levy administered by the WCB.
