Priority 3:
Data Informed Investments and Actions

Re-envisioning our opportunities based on data and input

At the core of our actions is determining what our stakeholders need and want from ACSA to improve safety outcomes.

To deepen our understanding of members’ needs, ACSA uses data from the industry, stakeholders and customers to inform product development and management.

Key Initiatives

Increasing impact on common and severe injuries:

In 2022, ACSA created an inventory of existing resources and identified new resources needed to better support the industry. Most common and severe injuries include falls to lower level, struck by object, and back/spine injuries.

Improving on virtual instructor-led training (vILT):

ACSA uses student feedback for continual improvement. Examples include eliminating breakout rooms and creating a video tutorial on Alberta’s OHS legislation structure.

Improving our auditing programs:

In 2022, ACSA surveyed stakeholders in our peer auditor, Certificate of Recognition (COR), and Small Employer Certificate of Recognition (SECOR) programs. Feedback continues to be used to improve these programs.

Staff development:

Along with other professional development, all staff completed a safety re-orientation and cyber security awareness training. A prevention program lowered ACSA’s phish-prone rate from 2.9% to 2.6%, well below industry standards.
