Alaska Safety Alliance
The Alaska Safety Alliance (ASA) works to create, connect and enhance workforce training and education programs in Alaska. Founded in 1999 as the Alaska Process Industry Careers Consortium (APICC), ASA is a nonprofit established by employers in the state as a way to collaborate in developing a skilled local workforce.
By providing classroom and computer-based training for the oil and gas, maritime, construction and other industries, ASA helps ensure employees are knowledgeable and prepared to work safely in Alaska’s unique environment.
In addition, ASA utilizes a digital platform to track worker training, partnering with prominent organizations such as the National Safety Council and the Association of Reciprocal Safety Councils, to simplify the tracking and onboarding process for employers and ensure that training is consistent and verifiable. ASA also creates customized training to meet the evolving needs of Alaska’s leading employers.
“The Alaska Safety Alliance offers practical guidance, tools, and solutions to meet industry’s workforce training needs. We help companies maintain a highly trained and skilled workforce they need to stay efficient, competitive, and safe.”
