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.
