Manufacturing Safety Alliance of BC




Welcome the Manufacturing Safety Alliance of BC as our meal sponsor for the 2018 South Island Safety Conference. We’ll all be able to thank MSA BC for the wonderful continental breakfast and lunches which are included in every registration.

The Manufacturing Safety Alliance of BC (formerly known as FIOSA-MIOSA Safety Alliance of BC) is the health and safety association for manufacturers and food processors in British Columbia. Their guiding principle is to create and maintain a united resource so that the manufacturing and food processing industries can improve health and safety, reduce injury rates, and insurance premiums. The goal is to assist members and clients wishing to enhance their health and safety management systems.

They work hand-in-hand with your organization to help you build an effective and sustainable health and safety management system. If you do not have an occupational health and safety (OHS) resource or program in place, they can work with your team to help you build a program. They offer a number of training, tools, resources and professional advisory services to help your business become healthier and safer places to work. Whether in a classroom or on your shop floor, they go the extra mile so you can achieve your objectives.

Thanks to the MSA BC for helping support this important safety event!
