Fitting in staff vacations can be challenging for any organization and it certainly is for ours. To minimize the number of days our offices are short-staffed and still allow our staff to take their preferred holidays our offices will be closed from Wednesday June 6 to Tuesday June 12, 2018. We will reopen at Wednesday June 13, 2018. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
The April 26/18 and June 21/18 Fundamentals for Joint Health and Safety Committees Course dates have both sold out. We have added an additional overflow date of June 19, 2018 at our offices in Richmond BC to help handle the high demand for this course. Call or email by via the “Contact” webpage to register.
The 2018 Western Conference on Safety is now over. While we are still compiling the results from the delegate evaluations the buzz was extremely positive. While the conference has now sold out for 6 of the last 7 years, the regular and group registration categories sold out over 3 weeks before the conference itself and that’s a new record. Over 1200 people participated in the conference over the 4 days of conference sessions, safety tradeshow and post conference courses. Thank you to all the speakers, exhibitors, volunteers, staff and all our wonderful attendees. The 2019 conference runs Monday April 9 and Tuesday April 10, 2019 at the Hyatt Regency Vancouver. Registrations for the conference will open November 1, 2018 with tradeshow sales opening in early September (date to be announced).
The 2018 Western Conference on Safety and post-conference courses are nearly sold out. We try to keep the conference website up to date but there can be a significant delay in updating the “Sold Out” status of the conference or its post-conference courses. If you are in the process of registering we strongly suggest you confirm there is still space available in either the conference or post-conference course of interest BEFORE you make any travel arrangements.
The March 27, 2018 Fundamentals for Joint Health & Safety Committees Course is now SOLD OUT. Next Richmond based course runs April 26, 2018. See the Courses webpage for the full course schedule.
As of April 3, 2017 WorkSafeBC enacted new regulations requiring mandatory training for new Safety Committee members. These new training requirements define 7 learning outcomes that such training must include. Our Fundamentals of Joint Health and Safety Committees course is specifically designed to meet this new training regulation. For more information on WorkSafeBC’s new requirements click here. For information on our Fundamentals of Joint Health & Safety Committees Course click here. (our next scheduled course runs May 11, 2017 and as always we can come to your site to do a special course just for your committee members. Click here for more info.)
The 23rd 2018 Western Conference on Safety will be held April 9-10, 2018 at the Hyatt Regency Vancouver. Watch this space for more information coming later this summer.
