Who We Are
We are a Health and Safety Association (HSA) operating in BC to facilitate First Nations oversight in all aspects of Occupational Health, Safety and Environmental management.
Our Mission is to support BC First Nation and Aboriginal workers, communities and enterprises in achieving the highest standard of occupational health, safety and environment management by building internal capacity to manage sustainable step-change and create a legacy of safety leadership and environmental oversight.
Research has shown that significant disparities and challenges exist for First Nations people, communities and enterprises when aligning HSE activities to cultural needs and traditions.
The First Nations Safety Council has been formed to support oversight by First Nations concerning occupational health, safety and environmental management for all workers and organizations engaged on First Nations’ lands or in partnership with First Nations enterprises.
