Professional conference set to offer new solutions

April 15, 2018 by  

The NAOSH Week Conference is taking place in Medicine Hat for two days next month.

NAOSH (North American Occupation Safety and Health) Week is set to take place this year from May 6 to 12. A variety of events will be held all over the county to celebrate.

The conference is aimed mainly at educating professionals in the latest health and safety procedures and laws.

Prior to the conference, there will be a workshop on May 8 with the topic of risk tolerance. Led by Dave Fennell, tickets are $75 for Canadian Society of Safety Engineering members or $95 for non-members. The next day will feature a free seminar hosted by the Workman’s Compensation Board on back-to-work strategies.

The conference itself will feature talks on employment standards, health and safety, and OHS legislation. Attendees can also watch a demonstration of HALO; a medical emergency helicopter.

This is an opportunity for professionals to network with their peers. Many who plan on attending may be placing a business card printing order with their favorite Medicine Hat printing company beforehand.

The NAOSH Week Conference will be held at Medicine Hat College from May 10 to 11. Fees for the full conference are $105 for CSSE members and $140 for nonmembers, while one-day admission is $60 or $80. Visit the Eventbrite page for more information.
