About the Manufacturers' Health & Safety Association

Ever since we became a not-for-profit safety association in 1992, we’ve diligently worked with Alberta employers to reduce injuries and occupational illnesses on worksites. We collaborate with government and industry to offer health and safety programs that help companies become top safety performers. But it’s not just our top-notch products and services that make us a leading health and safety provider. Our most successful factor is our members, over 1600 of them, who employ over 60,000 workers across the province. We are deeply committed to serve as safety advocate for their interests. We owe it to our members to ensure they have a voice when it comes to crucial topics that affect them. Whoever you are, a worker, large employer, small business owner, we’re here to help. A SAFER WORKPLACE STARTS HERE. DISCOVER HOW

MHSA Membership

You are automatically a member of the MHSA if you are employed with an organization that pays premiums to the Alberta WCB in one of the following rate groups:

30100- Steel/Metal Fabrication

62500- Steel Service

Companies who don’t belong to one of these WCB codes can join the MHSA for a small fee and receive all of the benefits of membership.


The Manufacturers' Health & Safety Association (MHSA) was formed in 1992 at the request of the metal fabricating industry in order to reduce injuries in the steel fabricating industry.

The MHSA was originally the Metal Fabricating Health & Safety Association. The name was changed in late 1999 to allow companies in the entire manufacturing sector to have an association they could work with regarding occupational health & safety and Workers' Compensation issues.

The MHSA is funded through a levy on the companies Alberta Workers' Compensation Board (WCB) premium assessment. The Association has been involved in the Partners in Injury Reduction Program since 1994.
