Operating since 1973, RUSA is an association made up of rural municipalities, counties, towns, special areas and villages dedicated to the safer working conditions for contractors and the public in general when working near any utility, and in the long term, lower costs to municipalities. RUSA represents and supports our members in areas of professional development, safety, uniform interpretation and application of appropriate legislation.
Originally RUSA was founded for the installation of natural gas in Alberta.
Our mandate is to ensure the safety of contractors, workers, the public and future generations when near any utility in the municipality.
RUSA works with the Alberta Municipal Health & Safety Association (AMHSA) to enhance and promote workplace health and safety for municipalities located in 'Rural Alberta'.
Association is creating interest in rural and urban municipalities as an opportunity to meet employee needs.
