Each year, NlCSA hosts a one-day event aimed at providing our membership, and related stakeholders, with a day of relevant information that will directly benefit them in improving health and safety in their own working environments.
On February 16th nearly 200 delegates connected at NLCSA’s Health and Safety Conference at The Sheraton in St. John’s. The theme for this year’s event, ‘Check It Out’, is about being aware, taking a closer look, and always keeping an eye on what is important - things like hazards, prevention, planning, safety programs, procedures and training. We hope the conference theme, ‘Check It Out’, will continue to resonate, beyond the conference, in workplaces and personal lives every day. To help with that, NLCSA had a great line-up of speakers on a variety of topics.
