Staying on top of the latest health & safety regulations, training requirements, CSA Standards and industry best practices can be overwhelming and very confusing. And then there are the costs, in time and money, of doing the "right thing!"
Compounding that issue is the simple fact that many HR professionals are being asked to wear yet another hat - and assume the mantle of the Health & Safety "expert" in their place of business.
In this tongue-in-cheek presentation, HASCO Vice-President Derek Bumstead, navigates you through the wrong ways to approach health & safety in your workplace - from the attitudes of the people at the top of the corporate food chain, to the culture of health & safety in each workplace, to the training ALL Ontario companies and organizations are required to provide.
Be careful though! Because along the way, you might discover that the "right way" is actually the best way for your company...and you could save significant money in the process.
The added benefit of having safer, more loyal workers is just the icing on the cake.

Dr Tim Baker's new book - "Attracting and retaining Talent: Becoming and Employer of Choice" identified eight values that all employers of choice adhere to. These eight values are:
• flexible deployment,
• customer focus,
• performance focus,
• project-based work,
• human spirit and work,
• learning and development, and
• open information.
This presentation looks at the changing employment relationship and how that is the critical linchpin for creating an organizational culture that supports an employer of choice. Becoming an employer of choice is much more than a marketing slogan; it is fundamentally about creating a new culture that serves the changing needs and interests of employee and employer.
