What we do
Association of Canadian Safety Professionals (ACSP) is a public interest not-for-profit organization, with an exclusive focus on ‘Recent Graduates and Internationally Trained Newcomer Safety Professionals’ in Ontario. ACSP has been established not to compete and/or duplicate other associations but instead to bring additional value to the field of Occupational Health and Safety. There is a growing demand for occupational health and safety professionals and there is a need to prepare more professionals to be ready and skilled to meet that demand.
