Safe Work Manitoba will be part of a Northern Safety Forum being held in Flin Flon June 19th. Their Chief Operating Officer Jamie Hall says they are working with other partners on the overall strategy to reduce injury and illness in the workplace and a big part of that is safety certification but also how safety certified companies can get a 15 percent reduction in their WCB payments in 2018. He says they are going to present that overall strategy, they’re going to have some of their partners and they are pleased to be working with the Northern Mining Academy but they’ll also have Made Safe which is a manufacturing safety association and Manitoba Heavy Construction will be presenting as well and talking about some of the challenges and needs in the north as they look to roll out these strategic initiatives.
The Forum will take place Monday June 19th at the UCN Regional Center at 4 Hart Avenue in Flin Flon from 2 to 4. You are asked to RSVP to email@example.com by Monday.
