Return On Investment of People, Processes & Economics
The 2014 Make It Safe Manufacturing Safety Conference is set for November 4 and 5 at the Burnaby Delta Hotel and Conference Centre.
Make It Safe is the newest and fastest growing safety conference in Western Canada. With hundreds of attendees from all over Western Canada, the conference provides an opportunity for health and safety professionals to meet and catch up on the latest trends and issues in Occupational Health and Safety.
Speakers for the two day event will deal with topics such as the People, Processes and Economics of health and safety and breakout sessions will be devoted to some of the most pressing and challenging issues in health and safety management.
Ergonomics and the prevalence of Musculoskeletal Injuries (MSIs) will be addressed in two separate sessions. MSIs have become one of industry’s biggest safety issues.
The Business Case for Safety and a breakdown of the specific Returns On Investment (ROIs) from an effective health and safety management system will be discussed in a special session. This is particularly relevant in today’s uncertain economy.
Other topics will include Machine Guarding, Mental Health in the Workplace, the new Anti-Bullying and Harassment legislation in BC and the new WHMIS requirements will also be reviewed.
The Benefits of the Occupational Safety Standard of Excellence (OSSE) will be reviewed. OSSE is BC’s most robust and rigourous health and safety management certification program. It is managed by FIOSA-MIOSA under WorkSafeBC’s Partners in Injury and Disability Prevention Program.
OSSE recognizes and rewards employers who go beyond the legal requirements of the Workers Compensation Act and the Occupational Health and Safety Regulation by taking a ‘best practices’ approach to implementing health, safety, injury management and return-to-work (RTW) management systems.
