The Hockey Canada Safety Person program is a development initiative of Hockey Canada. The emphasis of the volunteer program is on injury prevention and safety through risk management and education. It includes resources to help make the minor hockey experience safer and more enjoyable for everyone involved.

The program improves the game by providing an organized, easy-to-access education program for hockey safety and injury-prevention volunteers. It provides participants with information they need to promote and implement improved safety, risk management and injury-prevention practices in hockey. Today, Hockey Canada has adopted the safety person program as a mandatory program to show its commitment to improving the safety and enjoyment of the game.

The program is available to any person who is interested in being a safety person on their team. The six-hour program is a simple approach to safety and injury prevention. If you are interested in becoming the safety person for your team, contact your local member branch for clinic information.
