Health & Safety Committees

Health and Safety Committees

Asphalt Technical Advisory Committee (ATAC)
Originally called the "Road Builder Group", the ATAC committee came together after the asphalt production industry faced a series of severe accidents and near misses. ATAC serves as an ongoing industry committee that now provides the BCCSA with valuable insight and works to develop tools that address workplace safety.
BC Stone, Sand, and Gravel Safety Committee
In response to fatalities within the aggregate industry in 2007, the BC Stone, Sand and Gravel Association made safety a high priority on their agenda. This committee is currently composed of industry representatives from the BCSSGA working in partnership with the Ministry of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources (MEMPR) and the BC Construction Safety Alliance (BCCSA).
Concrete BC Safety Committee
This committee was established in 2009 and works with BCCSA and industry specialists to enhance industry health and safety through such initiatives as development of information materials and annual safety awards that recognize safety commitment via annual safety awards, and other initiatives.
COR® Technical Advisory Committee (TAC)
As a Certifying Partner of the Certificate of Recognition (COR®) program, the BCCSA has established a Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) to ensure our COR®-related training and audit requirements for employers reflect OHS best practice and industry needs. The COR® Technical Advisory Committee work to guide the development and maintenance of BCCSA audit tools, training materials, and quality control processes that meet the construction industry’s needs.
FFRP Technical Advisory Committee (TAC)
The Fire and Flood Restoration Program (FFRP) Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) was formed in 2005 as the British Columbia Association of Restoration Contractors (BCARC). It was the first association in North America devoted exclusively to workplace health and safety issues in the fire and flood restoration industry. BCARC amalgamated with the BCCSA in 2016 and the committee continues to deliver safety training and resources to the restoration industry under the Fire & Flood Restoration Program.
Prime Contractor Technical Advisory Committee (PCTAC)
The Prime Contractors Technical Advisory Committee (PCTAC) was formed by the BCCSA in late 2012 with a group of representatives from COR® certified "General Contractors", who all faced similar challenges in coordinating safety on medium to large sized construction projects.
THARRP Steering Committee
The Technical High Angle Rope Rescue Program (THARRP) Steering Committee oversees the THARRP program.
