As part of Mission: Zero, the province’s safety initiative challenging employers to take steps with a goal of zero accidents, the Workers Compensation Board held its 8th Annual Worksafe workshop at the Gallagher Centre Tuesday.
Running the majority of the day, major speakers -- including Yorkton’s own success story, Harvest Meats -- were onhand to tell their stories about how they create a safe work environment, as well as the steps they took to get there.
The inspiring conference was exceptionally well attended, with the National Bank conference room completely packed. The parking lot was jam packed with vehicles, so it was apparent that the WCB’s message resonated loud and clear with the enthusiastic audience.
More than eighty local leaders and employers were in attendance.
“WorkSafe continues to be committed to connecting the people of Saskatchewan with the most current information, resources and tools to improve awareness about safety issues,” said Annette Goski, interim director of prevention at the Saskatchewan Workers’ Compensation Board (WCB).
“We continue to host this workshop in smaller communities around the province to promote injury prevention.”
