Health and Safety

One of the four strategic pillars for the Petroleum Services Association of Canada is Health and Safety. The strategic directive is to strive for continuous improvement in the industry’s health and safety performance.

Our objective is to:

  1. Cooperate with the other industry Associations and their members, and regulatory agencies on initiatives designed to reduce the number of fatalities and injuries in the upstream petroleum industry;
  2. Champion the development of best practices, performance standards and industry recommended practices (IRPs);
  3. and engage with regulators and other oil and gas industry sectors on initiatives designed to achieve harmonization of occupational health and safety regulations in the western provinces.

We require all PSAC Regular Member companies to have a basic safety program (Certificate of Recognition (COR) or small employers COR (SECOR)) in place.
