Partners in Prevention 2019: get inspired by real businessesImplementing lasting solutions to core hazards, monitoring emerging issues, tracking new technology - these are all essential to doing your job well. Learn how business owners are discovering new ways to improve workplace safety and more in two intensive days at WSPS' Partners in Prevention 2019 Health & Safety Conference & Trade Show, April 30-May 1 in Mississauga.

No other annual health and safety event offers the range of learning, networking and solution sourcing opportunities.

Here’s a sampling of must-attend sessions, drawn from 60+ sessions in 7 streams: human resources, mental health and workplace culture, leadership, legislation and legal issues, JHSCs, hazards and general health and safety. They all share the same goal: presenting insights, opportunities and next steps that will help you do your job more efficiently and help your workplace better protect its people.
