Canadian Society of Safety Engineering (CSSE)

Canadian Society of Safety Engineering (CSSE)

CSSE was founded in 1949 by a small group of dedicated individuals drawn together in the common cause of accident prevention. It grew from a provincially-based organization to become Canada`s largest national and most established professional organization for health and safety practitioners. Today, we have over 4,000 members across Canada, the United States, and around the world working together to enhance the health, safety and environmental profession.
