Regional Safety Committee Updates

The ACSA regularly interacts with employers and employees in construction through our eight Regional Safety Committees (RSCs), located in Calgary, Edmonton, Grande Prairie, Lakeland (Lloydminster), Lethbridge, Medicine Hat, Parkland (Red Deer), Wood Buffalo (Ft. McMurray).

They are comprised of representatives from construction and trades associations, along with worker members and are tasked with developing and delivering safety initiatives to spread awareness, provide training opportunities and fundraise within local communities.
