Reduced Summer Hours Start June 17/19
After a very busy winter and spring period we will be giving our staff some much needed time off this summer. It is our slowest time of the year so we will be cutting back dramatically on our office hours and closing completely on some days. By taking as much staff vacation as possible over the summer we are able to maximize our availability the rest of the year. (Regularly scheduled courses at our Richmond office will run as normal). Here are our projected office hours (completely and totally subject to change except for our regularly scheduled course dates and the “office closed” periods)
June 17-18/19 Closed
June 19 –July 25: Summer Hours in effect. Usually open from 9:30am to 2:30pm but occasionally closed during this time. Closed Every Friday
July 29: Closed
August 12- August 30: Office closed. Emails and voicemail messages will be answered but some delay in replying will occur.
September 3 onwards: Regular office hours resume: 9:00am – 4:30pm. Monday – Friday.
If you call us during July or August 2019, you may get our voice mail. If you call in August during our “office closed” period it could take 1-2 days to get back to you. The best way to contact us is by email. We will be monitoring it and should be able to get back to you much faster than via phone.
Dates Set for Fall BC Safety Committee Conference
Mark Your Calendars! The dates for this fall’s 2019 BC Safety Committee Conference have now been finalized. This years conference will be held Thursday November 14, 2019 with several post conference safety courses running the following day on Friday November 15, all at the Coast Langley Hotel and Conference Centre in Langley BC. More information will be posted here as it comes available.
We still have one seat available for our June 5th course, but the June 12 and 27 courses have sold out. But don’t worry. We’ve added another date for June so we have you covered. The next course available is June 24, 2019.
This years’ Western Conference on Safety is now officially over. With well over 1200 people participating and the conference selling out 10 days earlier than ever, so many speakers sharing their expertise, exhibitors showing the latest and greatest products and services this years conference was the best yet. We are already at work on the 2020 conference which runs April 6 & 7 at the Hyatt Regency Vancouver. We will share more information as it comes available but in the meantime have a great summer!
