The safety of employees and customers is a top priority for the Western Convenience Stores Association (WCSA). It is no accident that our member companies have come to enjoy an exemplary safety record within the broader retail sector: it is an achievement resulting from our commitment to ongoing improvement and continued vigilance.
Our members regularly create new programs, strategies and technologies to ensure safety in response to emerging concerns for employees and customers alike. It has become standard practice to reassess injury prevention programs to keep stride with operational changes as they occur. Overall safety standards have improved through the sharing of information within the association: we hope to raise the bar further by sharing with the broader convenience store community.
In consultation with our members and fellow Canadian Convenience Stores Association chapters, WCSA has begun to assemble a growing collection of accepted best practices. We are committed to sharing this information with all convenience stores -- WCSA members and non-members alike.
