CCSA Health and Safety Program Review (HSPR)

The CCSA is committed to helping organizations meet legislation and improve health and safety for all workers.  We are currently scheduling Health and Safety Program reviews for both members and non-members. 

The CCSA Health and Safety Program review is meant to help you identify areas for improvement in your organization’s overall health and safety program and discover any gaps that may exist that could hinder compliance with OHS legislation; both existing and new legislation brought about by Bill 30.

Please visit the Health and Safety Program Review page under programs to learn more and to register.
