With more than Thank you to the more than 1200 conference and post conference course attendees, exhibitors, speakers and volunteers it was the second largest Western Conference on Safety ever and the 2nd largest OSH conference in Canada. We are hard at work doing all the “after-conference” paperwork and giving our staff some hard earned time off. We will soon be starting on the 2018 conference coming April 9-10 and be posting more information on it as it becomes available. In the meantime, enjoy your summer!


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.
