NLCSA's 2018 Conference In Review


On April 19th nearly 200 delegates connected at NLCSA’s Health and Safety Conference, ‘The Big Picture: An NLCSA Production’, at Cineplex in St. John’s. Distractions, fatigue and other pressures that can interfere with the ability to work safely were some of the big picture topics for this conference. 


Our line-up of presentations included:

‘What Has Your Attention? Distraction and Complacency on the Job’ 

Shelley Poirer, Senior Safety Advisor with the New Brunswick Construction Safety Association, spoke about the role that distraction and complacency has on preventing us from seeing hazards that are in plain sight.


Personal Contributors to Fatigue in the Workplace

Dr. Sandra Dorman, Director, Centre for Research in Occupational Safety and Health at Laurentian University, discussed fatigue and anxiety, as well as strategies  to overcome these conditions.


The Face of Workplace Tragedy
