About the CSSE:

CSSE members work in many different industries but share one common goal: Ensuring our colleagues make it home safe at the end of the workday. As an organization, CSSE shapes the safety profession in Canada by working with its members and partners. CSSE was founded in 1949 by a small group of dedicated individuals drawn together in the common cause of accident prevention. It grew from a provincially-based organization to become Canada’s largest national and most established professional organization for health and safety practitioners. Today, they have over 4,000 members across Canada, the United States, and around the world working together to enhance the health, safety, and environmental profession.

The 2018 South Island Safety Conference is scheduled for November 5 & 6, 2018 at the Saanich Fairgrounds Main Hall.
