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.
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.
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.
Wynny Sillito, Health and Safety Specialist/Speaker with the Threads of Life Speaker's Bureau shared her own story of a life-altering tragedy that occurred while she was preparing to save the lives of others.
David Coletto, Marketing Research Leader, and Expert on Millennials, helped us better understand Millennials (those born between 1980 and 2000) and how to empower multi-generational teams.
