On April 14 Workplace Safety North (WSN) expects to host 500 online attendees at its annual Mining Health and Safety Conference.
The event brings together Ontario’s mining industry to share knowledge and innovations regarding safety programs and hazards specific to mining.
Usually, the three-day in-person Sudbury event is sold out, but this year the conference is being offered as a one-day online conference free of charge to the industry.
“Our world has changed, but mining is considered essential and the industry continues to adapt rapidly,” says Paul Andre, WSN President and Chief Executive Officer.
“Due to the online venue, we’re definitely expecting a larger audience this year. In the past, we’ve live-streamed the conference and had folks attending from around the globe. So now we’re all online this year and happy to welcome miners to this one-day conference, which is themed ‘Unearthing the Way Forward.’
Keynote speaker Drew Dudley is a leadership expert featured on TED Talks, and an internationally acclaimed speaker and Wall Street Journal bestselling author.
