Safety Codes Council

 

The Opportunity

The Safety Codes Council plays a key role in the safety of structures and systems in Alberta. The SCC works with partners and stakeholders to ensure that Alberta is designed and built with your safety in mind. Professional Engineers and Geoscientists represent a vital piece of this mission. To support the important work of the SCC, APEGA seeks professional members to represent the association and act in the public interest as volunteers on the SCC Working Group and its Sub-councils
