All employers who pay into the 400 Group* of the Workers Compensation Board of Manitoba (WCB) industry codes are automatically members of CSAM. If you are involved in industrial, commercial, institutional, or residential construction, we are YOUR industry-based safety program.
The table below indicates which industry classifications belong to the 400 Group. To register as an automatic member, complete our automatic membership registration form. If you have any questions, please contact us at (204) 775-3171 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

* The 407 and 408 industry codes fall under road building classifications (MHCA WORKSAFELY™ rate codes) and are able to enlist in CSAM products and services through applying for an associate membership.
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 is fueled by our association’s focus on providing exceptional customer service, quality, and value for our clients.
We are pleased to offer other employers outside of construction with access to our services through an associate membership (see below).
Please contact us if you have any questions. We look forward to serving you.
CSAM is pleased to be able to serve companies outside of construction (outside of WCB’s “400” industry classification codes).
As a result of increasing demand for service from non-400 employers — and to assist current members with meeting their legislative responsibilities — CSAM will provide assistance and services to any employer through an associate membership, on the following conditions:
*The $500 annual membership fee is waived for all current members of the Winnipeg Construction Association and the Manitoba Home Builders Association. Members of these organizations are eligible to receive services from CSAM as an associate member.
PLEASE NOTE: WCB has recognized the value of industry based safety programs (IBSPs) and is planning to increase the number of employers eligible to receive services from IBSPs. In 2020, the WCB identified several rate classifications as “naturally aligned” to CSAM. This refers to employers who do not pay the five per cent levy** to belong to an IBSP, but based on their business operations, would be best aligned with and served by the CSAM.
The WCB rate classifications identified as naturally aligned to CSAM include:
|WCB Industry Classification Code||Industry Classification Description|
|50304||Cable and Satellite TV Distribution|
|50311||Audio Visual Services|
|70302||Architects and Engineers|
|70605||Yard Maintenance and Pest Control|
**IBSPs are funded through a five per cent levy, which is included within an employer’s WCB assessment rate.
For example, if your company’s annual assessment rate is $2.00 (per every $100 of payroll), five per cent of that ($0.10 per every $100 of payroll) would be used to fund your respective IBSP.
To help reduce the number of severe incidents in Manitoba AND bring down your WCB assessment rates, CSAM has created 18 classification summary reports for each of the construction classification codes serviced by CSAM. These reports outline the payroll, percentage, and rebate for COR® Certified companies, as well as the number of severe injuries and timeloss injuries (including top three cause, source, injury, and body part injured). The information provided will help identify, communicate, and prevent severe incidents based on your specific industry.
