FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE | February 5, 2024
Victoria, B.C. – Make It Safe Vancouver Island—Victoria’s new health and safety conference—lands at the Coast Victoria on Friday, March 1, 2024.
From breweries to fisheries, cheesemakers to metal manufacturers, Vancouver Island industry leaders, safety experts, HR professionals, and safety committees will meet and connect at this inaugural full-day event. Leading Island employers will connect at Make It Safe to share best practices and opportunities for practical training and professional development.
In a series of workshops, expert sessions, and panel discussions, Make It Safe Vancouver Island will help attendees make new connections and learn practical key strategies for world-class health, safety, and performance.
“Over the last few years, it’s become increasingly clear that successful companies have thriving cultures,” begins Lisa McGuire, CEO of the Manufacturing Safety Alliance of BC. “A healthy culture that manages risk to enhance productivity reduces turnover and leaves employees feeling safe.”
McGuire shares, “Make It Safe brings hands-on training for safety committees, professional development for safety and HR roles, and strategic takeaways for leaders and business owners.”
Make It Safe Vancouver Island features two tracks—a workshop track for safety committees and a conference track for leaders and professionals—connecting psychological health and wellness strategies to building skills for managing emergencies and business continuity.
“As business leaders, we need ensure that our organization and teams are ready to respond to the change that is on the horizon,” says McGuire.
