The Alberta Education Health and Safety Association
The Alberta Education Health and Safety Association (AEHSA) is a non- profit organization incorporated in May 2001. Our members are an engaged community of professionals involved in supporting health and safety program development and implementation within Alberta’s education sector. Our network and services extend to all of Alberta’s educational institutions from charter schools to universities.
As a Partner in Injury Reduction (PIR), we are committed to a leadership role in education health and safety. We work proactively to improve health and safety in both the working and learning environment by providing relevant and education specific information to members through newsletters, our website, formal and informal networking forums and professional conferences. Through a Memorandum of Understanding with the Alberta Government, a primary goal is to assist organizations in developing and maintaining health and safety management systems including the achievement of a Certification of Recognition (COR).
