Infrastructure Health & Safety Association


The Infrastructure Health & Safety Association (IHSA) is a leader in health and safety education. Through skills-based training, auditing, and evaluation, IHSA provides safety solutions to those who perform high-risk activities such as working at heights, working with energized high-voltage power systems, driving motor vehicles, transporting dangerous goods, working on suspended access equipment, and utility line clearing.

IHSA incorporates a research-based educational methodology, from the needs assessment stage through to program development, delivery, and evaluation. This comprehensive evaluation framework, which measures program and performance outcomes, is a critical element in high-risk activity education.

As part of Ontario's health and safety system, IHSA is recognized by the Ministry of Labour, the Ministry of Transportation, the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities, and the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board as designated trainers and consultants. You can be sure that the training you get from IHSA meets regulatory requirements and compliance standards.

IHSA has a network of labour-management health & safety committees that operate at the provincial, regional, and trade/sector level.  This network is voluntary and affords the industry a means of raising and resolving health and safety issues.  The GTSWCA is an active member of the Tunnelling, Provincial and Toronto Regional Labour-Management Committees.
