About CSAM

Since 1990, the Construction Safety Association of Manitoba (CSAM) has offered practical solutions for a safer workplace. We are a non-profit organization run by the building construction industry in Manitoba (the 400 Group of the Workers Compensation Board of Manitoba).

The Construction Safety Association of Manitoba (CSAM) is a non-profit organization run by and for the building construction industry in Manitoba, with governance provided by the Winnipeg Construction Association’s Board of Directors and the CSAM Advisory Committee.  Established in 1989, CSAM has earned the reputation as a leader in the safety landscape of Manitoba, as well as within the Canadian Federation of Construction Safety Associations. This reputation has been fueled by the association’s focus on providing exceptional customer service, quality, and value for its clients.

“Practical Solutions for a Safer Workplace” remains a cornerstone and guiding principle for the implementation of CSAM’s objectives:

  • To provide information regarding accident prevention methods and changes to health and safety regulations.
  • To develop information, resources, tools, and training programs to enable contractors to meet their legislated responsibilities.  
  • To provide guidance with respect to establishing comprehensive safety programs tailored to meet the needs of individual companies both large and small.
  • To act as the Authority Having Jurisdiction to grant COR™ Certification and SECOR™ Certification.

CSAM is financed by Manitoba contractors through a surcharge on a small percentage of contractors’ assessment premiums, collected by the Workers Compensation Board, as well as by the premiums paid by associate members, and revenue generated from products and services.
