After a very busy course and conference season we will be giving our staff some much needed time off from May 17 to June 16, 2023. This is our slowest time of the year and we will be cutting back dramatically on our office hours during that time. By scheduling as much staff vacation as possible over this time period we hope to maximize our availability to you throughout the rest of the year. As a result it may take 1-2 days to respond to phone calls or emails during that time. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.
2023 Western Conference – that’s a wrap!
If you were there, you know. What an amazing couple of days at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Vancouver! Can’t wait until next year! It’s a different format – pre conference courses on Wednesday April 17, with the conference running on April 18 and 19. Mark those dates on your calendar! We sold out 3 weeks before the conference this year, register early next year! Thanks to all those that attended, exhibited, volunteered, and shared their knowledge.

YES the Western Conference on Safety will return May 1 & 2, 2023 to the Hyatt Regency Vancouver.
