SPS Safety Program Support

Safety Program Support assists companies seeking to share the expense of an Occupational Health & Safety (OHS) professional. This will be a benefit when developing an internal OHS program, mentoring and developing an in-house OHS professional, or when in need of guidance coping with WorkSafe BC Compliance Orders.

How does SPS work?

The Manufacturing Safety Alliance of BC (the Alliance) provides an SPS Coordinator three days per month to help plan, train and mentor employees to build safety management protocols, practices and culture required to achieve OSSE (COR) certification. SPS Coordinators provide quarterly reports which include leading and lagging indicators.

By joining the Manufacturing Safety Alliance of BC Safety Pooling System we were able to share the costs of a health and safety professional while seeing a significant safety culture change within our organization.

Our main goal in joining the SPS group was to reduce the number of accidents and, in turn, reduce our WCB premiums and attain our OSSE certification. We wanted to ensure we remain competitive in the global economy.
