New from HSE Canada 2011 – Breathalyzer for Delegates

February 1, 2011

Health & Safety

Toronto, ON – Delegates to the new conference and trade show for health, safety and the environment in September can volunteer to take a breathalyzer test after the opening cocktail party before heading home. This test will be administered by the OPP and show management will donate a $20.00 taxi chit for anyone who would prefer not to drive home. “It’s an appropriate gesture from a “safety” perspective in an age where we have learned the devastating results of errors in judgment regarding our personal safety”, said Nate Bright, Show Manager. “We want to encourage people to take personal safety seriously both in the workplace and in social situations. This will hopefully help to create an all round safety attitude for all issues pertaining to health, safety and the environment”.

Unique format

The conference will provide 2 sessions each morning for Canadian workers and managers whose responsibility is safety and health, or the environment, to attend the desired session. After the morning sessions, time has been allocated for them to visit the show portion where they can see the latest products and demonstrations, talk with vendors and learn how their specific challenges can be met. Sessions for the delegates will begin again in the afternoon which will keep a balance to the “learning” experience. Whether it’s a seminar format, a town hall format, or a peer-to-peer knowledge discussion format, there’s something for everyone who is interested in the HSE theme of the conference.

Mr. Bright stated, “It’s all about doing due diligence and learning about compliance issues to keep Canadian workers safe. The new conference formats will help Canadian companies achieve HSE goals more easily and less expensively than ever before”.
