We improve worker health and safety and enhance safety culture through the sharing of knowledge and resources.
Wondering who our members are? Every town, village, municipal district, county, city, and specialized municipality in British Columbia is a member of the BCMSA.
Healthcare + Education + Transportation
The BCMSA is naturally-aligned with organizations in these industries to participate in Local Government COR. Being the health & safety resource of choice has proven benefits reaching beyond our members.
“Plan the work……work the plan.”
Strategic planning is essential for us to set priorities, allocate scarce resources, manage risks, and measure success. It allows decision-makers to make both short and long-term choices which build a solid foundation for long term success. We focus on the most important initiatives and manage our resources to their greatest potential.
Health and safety training are among our priorities. Since 2009 we have delivered training to more than 50,000 workers. In 2018 alone over 800 classroom sessions were scheduled through us and delivered throughout the province. We’re extremely proud of the work we do and the relationships we have developed and maintained with workers and employers.
The BCMSA is the Certifying Partner for employers in the Local Government Classification Unit and is responsible for the creation of the Local Government Audit Tools, Training and Certifying External and Internal Auditors, and overall quality assurance of the program.
