Innovative solutions to manage the forever changed world of work

Release Date: Sept 1, 2022

Disruption, innovation and ongoing uncertainty have changed the way we work. If there is an upside to the chaos of the past couple of years, it’s that workplace health and safety has been brought to the forefront of the conversation. Business leaders understand, with greater clarity, the importance of what it means to keep workers safe. And they have questions.

To provide answers to urgent and emerging health and safety issues, Workplace Safety & Prevention Services (WSPS) will return to their regional Partners in Prevention (PIP) conference format this fall (three separate locations). WSPS is also expanding opportunities with a series of Breakfast Briefings on what business owners need to know about WSIB Claims, Mental Stress and Workplace Entitlement as well as Days of Learning, customized to meet the unique needs of hosting communities. Recognizing the need for flexibility, the sessions will offer a blend of virtual and live event opportunities.

“The world of work is forever changed and balancing new demands is a significant challenge. The past two and a half years have demanded a high level of competence, dexterity and creative problem solving and now, we can capitalize on what we’ve learned,” says Lynn Brownell, President and CEO of WSPS. “We’ve carefully curated content for this year’s Partners in Prevention regional conferences and other learning opportunities to address the most pressing issues and provide the tools to proactively meet the challenges ahead.”

From worker stress and burnout to remote work environments to impairment on the job, industry leaders are balancing acute health and safety challenges while trying to maintain focus on core fundamentals. Under the theme of “Finding Balance” the Partners in Prevention format will include legal updates, developments affecting employee responsibilities and obligations including new penalties, risk management tools, and workplace impairment and mental health strategies with a wide range of options.

“Successful leaders are looking for high impact initiatives to drive transformative trends that safeguard human potential. A healthy workforce means a healthy business,” Brownell adds. “The upcoming sessions will help business owners and health and safety leaders respond and adapt to changing dynamics to meet the needs and demands of their workers while delivering value and fueling growth.”
