Future Programs

Unlike similar safety associations that can access funding through levies and programs offered by provincial government departments and the WCB The Residential Construction Safety Association RCSA does not fall within those guidelines of an employer - employee relationship. We are outside the box of these requirements. The work that is carried out on residential properties for the most part is done by the homeowners and the independent contractors and self - employed individuals. Under the Occupational Health and Safety Act there is a relationship between these two parties but it is not an employer - employee relationship.

There has to be a common theme between these two parties where their contribution can benefit both parties. One of these common themes that could be considered is a modest property tax levy. This method would provide a real value benefit. The owners of residential properties and those individuals they hire would receive a subsidy towards the Occupational Health and Safety Workshops and Skills Development Training programs provided by THE RESIDENTIAL CONSTRUCTION SAFETY ASSOCIATION RCSA.

Our safety programs will not be designed to replace those safety training programs that presently exist, we will enhance them. THE RESIDENTIAL CONSTRUCTION SAFETY ASSOCIATION RCSA will also be extending our Skills Development Safety Training beyond what is presently available.
