Canadian Society of Safety Engineering

The Canadian Society of Safety Engineering (CSSE) is a Canadian association which promotes accident prevention. It was founded in 1949 by a small group of dedicated individuals drawn together in the common cause of accident prevention. [ [http://www.csse.org/content/about_csse/history.asp Canadian Society of Safety Engineering: History ] ] It grew from a provincially based organization to become Canada's largest national and most established professional organization for health and safety practitioners.

The CSSE is the leading health, safety and environmental organization for professionals in Canada. The CSSE works with industry, governmental agencies and other safety organizations to promote a greater awareness of health, safety and environmental issues in workplaces and communities across the nation and around the world. The vision of the CSSE is “An Advocate for Safety in Every Workplace”.

Today, the CSSE has over 3000 members across Canada, the United States, and around the world working together to enhance the health, safety and environmental profession. The CSSE supports the operation of 31 local Chapters, which provide a local forum for information exchange and networking among professionals. Through Chapter meetings and activities, members promote and enhance the profile of the profession in communities throughout Canada.

The mission of the CSSE is to be the resource for professional development, knowledge and information exchange to its members, its profession and the Canadian public.

It participates in North American Occupational Safety and Health Week (NAOSH), which seeks to raise awareness of occupational safety and health.
