The voting members of the IEC meet each year to confirm the Board of Directors, which includes a pre-defined number of member site leaders.
In addition to these Directors, the IEC Board also includes two ex-officio appointments from:
- Lambton College

The IEC Board meet regularly to assess proposals for new regional safety initiatives to address incident learnings, respond to emerging trends, and introduce best practices. The Board receives progress reports on the status of ongoing initiatives and projects in the region and adjusts priorities as required.
The IEC 7-7-7 Committee includes senior technical leaders with specialization in safety from regional operating sites, SL Building Trades, and Contractors as nominated by the Sarnia Construction Association. The Committee meets regularly to develop proposals for new regional initiatives for Board review. The members work together to select subject matter experts to support project teams to develop and implement projects at the discretion of the IEC Board.
