OSSE Continual Improvement Program

What comes after OSSE Certification?

Building an effective Occupational Health and Safety Management System (OHSMS) is only the first step in maintaining a safe work environment for your workers. One of the tenets of a well-functioning OHSMS is to continually evaluate the system and make improvements whenever necessary. While this is true of all management systems in a company, it may have even greater impact when looking at an organization’s health and safety.


Managing, maintaining and improving your OHSMS can be challenging as there is often a lack of knowledge as to what may be missing from your system or you face resistance when introducing further changes.

In an effort to support OSSE-Certified companies in this challenge, the Manufacturing Safety Alliance of BC has developed the OSSE Continual Improvement Program (CIP). The CIP is designed to help you, an OSSE-certified company, to continue to improve your health and safety programs. We can assist you by providing additional occupational health and safety resources, education, training and discussion opportunities with respect to issues that arise after OSSE certification or re-certification.

By participating in the CIP we aim to be the go-to source for your company when new and unusual OHS issues arise, when your company needs a motivational push, when you want to network with others in the industry to share best practices and when you need assistance in developing new initiatives.

In the brief time since we launched the CIP, we have held free Share & Learn networking sessions hosted at OSSE Certified company locations, conducted a series of Lunch & Learn sessions for multiple employees, and provided guidance related to specific health and safety issues. Further Share & Learn Seminars are being planned for the 2016-2017 year and will be posted on our website as they are scheduled.

We encourage you to express your intent to participate in the OSSE Continual Improvement Program by completing the form below, or by contacting us at 1.604.795.9595 or osse@safetyalliancebc.ca.
