About the Manufacturing Safety Alliance of BC
The Manufacturing Safety Alliance of BC (“the Alliance”) is a not-for-profit industry organization that seeks to address challenges and opportunities specific to food & beverage processing and manufacturing and to set industry standards for health and safety. The Alliance was established by industry leaders in December 2007, (originally called the BC Food Processors Health and Safety Council), to help reduce injuries and claims costs industry-wide, and to exchange information about how this can be achieved.
The guiding principle is to create and maintain a united resource so that by working together with the manufacturing and food processing industries, everyone can benefit from shared input and expertise to achieve our vision of being industry leaders in health and safety and our mission of fostering commitment among employers to reduce the unacceptable rate of injury in BC.
The Alliance works in partnership with WorkSafeBC in their Partners in Injury and Disability Prevention Program, Certificate of Recognition (COR) program. This is a program that recognizes and financially rewards employers who have high standards of occupational health and safety and return-to-work programs.
