Since its founding in 1989, the Construction Safety Association of Manitoba has grown to become a recognized safety leader, committed to fostering a genuine culture of safety and injury prevention within Manitoba’s building construction industry. From innovative education programs to the mobile CSAM on Tour initiative to popular online resources like our Toolbox Talks, CSAM is proud to have earned a reputation for connecting members with practical, effective strategies that prevent injuries and save lives.

CSAM’s new strategic plan is a roadmap to allow the Association to build on its record of success. The strategic plan recognizes that the safety landscape continues to change, and that tools and approaches must in turn evolve and keep pace. The plan reflects the input of more than 50 individual stakeholders who were consulted during a pre-planning process, and sets out pragmatic, realistic actions and priorities to further improve safety across the industry.

The 2015-17 plan sets out five high-level priority areas:

  1. Continue to build a culture of safety
  2. Leverage role as industry, independent from government
  3. Leverage data and online platforms to target outreach
  4. Lead and innovate in service delivery beyond COR
  5. Continue to build organizational strength and alignment

The strategies within each priority area are intended to allow CSAM to continue to “set the bar” among industry safety associations. The plan’s action areas include a continued focus on investigating and deploying new approaches to deliver relevant, effective safety resources even to harder-to-reach companies. The strategic plan includes clear parameters for measuring and evaluating progress, and other tools to support successful implementation.
