CCOHS Forum 2019: Changing World of Work Explored


A wise person once said, “safety doesn’t happen by accident.” This is why the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health & Safety will hold it’s 6th conference, called Forum: 2019 The Changing World of Work, which they host every few years. This year, it will be held in Winnipeg, Manitoba on March 5-6, 2019.

The Forum brings together industry leaders, innovators and subject experts who represent government, labourers and Canadian workplaces. At Forum 2019, industry members will discuss their experiences and knowledge of existing and new health and safety issues in the workplace – the focus of 2019’s Forum will be the workplace of today and tomorrow. Topics of discussion will include the changing workforce, the changing workplace and the way the nature of work changes in modern times.
