VANCOUVER – The BC Construction Safety Alliance (BCCSA) has released a new animated video to give a visual representation of tools and services that it offers the construction industry.
The video explains the alliance offers resources, training, consultation and research to approximately 40,000 companies that employ roughly 200,000 workers. Much of this is offered at no cost.
The BCCSA’s programs focus on injury prevention and cultivating a culture of safety.
They are also designed to meet a diversity of needs for different positions within a company, from workers to managers and more.
The video explains its programs cover a wide range of topics, including traffic control, tower crane rescue, fire and flood restoration, hazard awareness and more.
“If you’re a construction contractor in B.C., you are automatically a member of the BCCSA,” states the video.
The video explains the alliance’s goal is to promote safety and regulatory compliance through the Certificate of Recognition (COR) program.
COR is a voluntary incentive program that recognizes companies who develop and implement health and safety and injury management systems that meet an industry standard. COR certification is offered by WorkSafeBC and delivered through certifying partners.
The animation also showcases the alliance’s silica tool, which helps contractors identify and manage silica exposure risk. Videos produced by the alliance can be found on the BCCSA’s YouTube page.
