The letterform M - for manufacturing - was selected as the graphic to propel the logo concept. The mark describes the manufacturing-process-reproduction and repetition. The slanted lines convey action, movement, and upward momentum, while the verticals pause the action, time to reflect/evaluate.
The 2016 name change from FIOSA-MIOSA (Food Industry Occupational Safety Association-Manufacturing Industry Occupational Safety Alliance) to the Manufacturing Safety Alliance of BC prompted a full-scale corporate re-brand.

Kathy joined the Alliance full-time in January 2016 to develop a new brand identity and branding assets that reflect the values and mission of the Alliance in a sophisticated yet friendly, fresh and approachable manner.
The Annual Reports have key design features that help to explain the focus for the year. 
Trade show banners, displays and exhibitor booth
The Welcome Package provides detailed information for new members on key services and processes to expect. The front and back vertical pockets hold letters and information sheets customized to the individual member.
Branded powerpoint presentations are used in executive presentations, business development, training sessions and webinars.
Online and instructor-led training catalogues are produced semi-annually. 
Training tools, Course Reference Manuals and Program Models on a variety of OHS topics
