Need help and not sure where to start?

Need safety training or advice? Have orders and need an expert to assess air quality, noise, dust, confined spaces, or machine safeguarding?

Our professional safety advisors and specialists are here to help.

The Manufacturing Safety Alliance of BC is the nonprofit health and safety association for manufacturing and food processing businesses across British Columbia—your partner in health and safety.

Membership benefits start here.

Industry-driven, the Alliance supports more than 3,000 British Columbia manufacturers and food processors with services and training, in 50 industries to date—from foundries to wineries, trailer manufacturers to meat processing plants. Year over year, more companies become a member of the Alliance and benefit from specialized support to build a healthy safety culture.

If you are not already a corporate member of the Alliance, independent membership gives you access to our qualified and specialized safety team and training for the specific help you need—to get compliant, build or improve your health and safety program, achieve COR / OSSE certification—whatever your health and safety goals may be.

Your advisory team.

A safety needs assessment is an onsite review of your health and safety program by a professional safety advisor. It’s a free service for Alliance members. We’ll help you make a plan to build or improve your workplace health and safety management system.

We are also here to support your safety team with specialized training and assessments: from ergonomics, air, noise, machine safeguarding, industrial storage racking, confined spaces, and combustible dust to leadership consulting and mental health training.

The Alliance has been an incredible resource for us over the past year. With the help of [our safety advisor], our program has flourished in so many ways. I look forward to years of collaboration with the Alliance.
