Meeting Today's Challenges - Building Strong Committees to Create Safe & Healthy Workplaces

The 2015 PSAC Prairie Region Health and Safety Conference will be held on Saturday, November 21 and concluding on Sunday, November 22. This triennial conference will be held at the Fairmont Hotel, in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

In response to the continually growing number of concerns brought forward by members, the overall theme will deal with the current challenges in dealing with employers, with particular attention to the roles of Workplace Health and Safety Committees, and the challenges faced by committee members. We will work together in a variety of formats in order to provide tools, resources and confidence in you; for how to deal with these issues and the negative impacts that have affected so many of our workplaces.

In the screening and selection process for this conference, priority will be given to those members who have demonstrated a commitment to health and safety in their workplaces, either in their work on a workplace health and safety, policy committee, or in an elected position supporting the work of the committees.
