2021 Western Conference on Safety Rescheduled

With the on-going Covid-19 situation and ban on gatherings of 50 or more people the 2021 Western Conference on Safety has been shifted from April 2021 to October 25 & 26, 2021 in order to increase the probability of Covid-19 being resolved and the conference being able to safely run. 

 More information on this will be posted this fall.

2020 BC Safety Committee Conference Indefinitely Postponed Due to COVID-19

When all gatherings of 50 or more people were banned in March 2020, we were all hoping that the Covid-19 situation would be resolved by the fall and that we would still be able to run the BC Safety Committee Conference. Previously scheduled for November 4 with optional post-conference courses running on November 5, it would have been THE safety event of the year.  Unfortunately the on-going Covid-19 situation combined with the near certainty that the ability to gather in groups larger that 50 will still be banned, meant that we now need to make the decision to indefinitely postpone the 2020 BC Safety Committee Conference. The planning and organization for it will resume once the COVID-19 situation is resolved and we hope to have more information this fall on when the new dates will be announced . Watch this space for more details.

Getting permission to attend a conference these days can be challenging.

Here are 4 key benefits that we suggest you use to convince your boss that you should attend:

1) Demonstrates that even in challenging times On-The-Job Safety is still a top priority in your organization.

2) Workplace accidents are expensive! They not only hurt people, they damage product and process machinery. This conference will help save money by giving you the tools needed to keep your accident/injury incidents as low as possible.

3) Helps build morale by doing something positive in these tough times.

4) Attending even 1 day of the conference can satisfy WorkSafeBC’s Annual Safety Committee Training Requirement.
