Tradition, Recognition, and History
Founded 60 years ago by a small group of workers dedicated to accident prevention, CSSE is now close to 4,000 members strong.
Originally a provincially-based organization, CSSE is now Canada's largest national and most established professional organization for Health, Safety, and Environmental practitioners.
One of the founders of North American Occupational Safety and Health (NAOSH) Week, CSSE works with its partners every year to focus the attention of employers, employees, the general public and all partners in Occupational Safety and Health on the importance of preventing injury and illness in the workplace, at home and in the community.
