The Western Conference on Safety is the largest Occupational Health & Safety Conference in Western Canada. Now in its 23rd year and featuring 2 keynote presentations, 20 conference seminars, 5 post conference courses and 80 safety tradeshow booths this year’s conference promises to be the biggest and best yet. Last year’s 2017 Western Conference on Safety sold out with more than 1000 attendees, 180 exhibitor staff, and 30 speakers. Each year the advisory committee travel across Canada and the USA to find the most interesting, latest and best sessions and bring them to Vancouver. If you only go to one conference in 2018 make it this one!

This is my third time at the conference and I always learn something new each time.
