Workplace Safety & Prevention Services will hold a health and safety symposium in Sudbury this October.

The Northeastern Ontario Health and Safety Symposium will be held Oct. 12 at the Steelworkers Union Hall in Sudbury. The one-day event is aimed at local businesses seeking solutions to improve their safety and productivity.

The day will open with a keynote presentation by Canadian sledge hockey player Kevin Rempel, a bronze medalist in the 2014 Sochi Paralympics. He will speak about overcoming adversity.

Following that, Dr. David Cameron, the regional supervising coroner for the northeast region, will lead a mock coroner’s inquest to guide business owners through the process of a coroner’s inquest.

During a luncheon presentation, mental health advocate Melissa Cutler will speak about Project Semicolon, a movement to raise awareness about and reduce the stigma around mental health.

During the afternoon, participants will have an opportunity to choose between a series of workshops on a range of topics including mental health, vibration exposure, liability, and fatigue.

Registration is now open. More information is available here.
