Release Date:  Apr 16, 2015

CEOs, operational leaders and other executives will gather at The International Centre in Mississauga, April 28, to exchange ideas on building health and safety into board decisions - a crucial conversation aimed at managing business risk, avoiding potentially disastrous results and advancing the governance agenda.

Dr. Daniel Muzyka, President and Chief Executive Officer, of The Conference Board of Canada is the featured guest speaker for the event addressing the importance of collaboration and the role of leaders in driving change. Elizabeth Mills, President and CEO of Workplace Safety & Prevention Services (WSPS), will briefly speak to how Board oversight of health and safety ensures long-term organizational success.

Hosted by WSPS, Bruce Power and Thomson Reuters, the event marks the inaugural round table of the CEO Health + Safety Leadership Network, a recently launched initiative that seeks to engage forward thinking executives in building a province-wide culture of health and safety. The event also will unveil details around the newly minted Canada's Best Health + Safety Culture Award, an initiative of the Network and Canada's Safest Employer Awards.
