What is Energy Safety Canada?

Energy Safety Canada

Have you heard of Energy Safety Canada? If not you are not alone!  On October 18, 2017, a merger of Enform Canada and Oil Sands Safety Association created the new Energy Safety Canada with a goal of bringing the best associations to accelerate improvements in safe work performance.

“A key objective of Energy Safety Canada is to facilitate the collaboration that’s required across all of our industry sectors to standardize and simplify and create best-in-class safety training and services,” says Murray Elliott, President of Energy Safety Canada. “In the coming months we will be reviewing and launching initiatives but, in the meantime, business continues as usual. Nothing has changed for workers or companies – whether it’s Enform or OSSA training certifications, safety audits, or other services.”
