CSSE Checklist
CSSE Checklist



CSSE was founded in 1949 by a small group of dedicated individuals drawn together in the common cause of accident prevention. It grew from a provincially-based organization to become Canada's largest national and most established professional organization for health and safety practitioners. Today, we have over 4,000 members across Canada, the United States, and around the world working together to enhance the health, safety and environmental profession.

Board of Directors

CSSE is self-governed by a board of voluntary directors elected by the membership. The Board is comprised of four Executive Officers (President, Vice-President/Treasurer, Immediate Past President and Secretary), one Education Director and five Regional Vice Presidents. The Executive Director serves in a ex-officio, non-voting role.

The Board is responsible for the overall direction and operation of CSSE on a national level, and establishes and implements policies and procedures to advance the objectives of the Society.
