CHILLIWACK, British Columbia - Oct. 11, 2019 - PRLog -- From a high-voltage opening keynote through 22 practical training sessions, the Make It Safe Health & Safety Conference and Trade Show will connect the dots between health and safety practices and the real impact on BC workers and businesses through story-telling and practical instruction.

Make It Safe 2019, to be held at The Nest at UBC October 24-25, will bring together owners, managers, HR and safety professionals, and joint health and safety committees from leading BC manufacturing and food processing companies for two days of networking and education.

"In its 14th year, Make It Safe is the leading health and safety conference for BC manufacturers and food processors," notes Lisa McGuire, CEO of the event's host organization, the Manufacturing Safety Alliance of BC.

In two days of 90-minute, three-hour, and full-day workshops, delegates will learn practical steps to transform their people practices and improve the performance of their safety committees. They will gain practical skills to address common and emerging manufacturing workplace hazards related to air quality, radiation, and new techniques for machine guarding and fluid power safety. They will get advice on the critical path to Occupational Safety Standard of Excellence (OSSE, or COR for manufacturing). And they will take away practical action plans to apply what they have learned to make a real impact in their own businesses.

"We are excited this year to offer delegates increased value this year," McGuire adds, "through an expanded educational program with 26 expert speakers, the opportunity to meet and hear from Minister of Labour Harry Bains, a seat at the Innovation Awards Luncheon where suppliers of safety products and services will vie for the 2019 trophy, and the chance to network and build relationships with industry peers."

Primary sponsors of Make It Safe 2019 include CapriCMW, Agency Media, and WorkSafeBC.

Advanced media registration is available by request to media contacts with valid press credentials.
