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.
- Calgary Regional Safety Committee (CRSC) – 12th Annual Golf Classic Tournament
On June 23, the CRSC held its 12th Annual Golf Classic Tournament, with 116 golfers participating in the event.
Lucky with the weather, everyone had a great time in the sunshine and enjoyed making new friends and catching up with some old ones.
Thanks to the great turnout as well as the 20 hole sponsors and raffle draw, the CRSC was able to raise over $10,000 for the family support charity Threads of Life.
- Lakeland Regional Safety Committee – ‘Treads of Life’ Motorcycle Run
On Saturday, June 18, 2016, the Lakeland RSC held its inaugural ‘Treads of Life’ Motorcycle Run, with 40 bikers donning their leathers and participating in the fundraising event.
Members of the Lloydminster community came out to enjoy the 350km ride along with live music, a BBQ, and prizes at the finish line.
Extensive local media coverage was received and almost $3,000 (including in-kind donations) was raised for the ‘Threads of Life’ family support charity, which is dedicated to helping Canadian families who have been affected by a workplace tragedy, life-altering injury or occupational disease.
This was a great result for the first year of this fantastic event and we look forward to seeing it grow year upon year and continue to raise the profile of workplace safety throughout the Lakeland region.
