Welcome to the 2019 Western Conference on Safety website. Here you can read about the great lineup of sessions and post-conference courses, review the conference safety tradeshow and its exhibitors, take advantage of the fabulous special “conference attendee only” low guest room rates at the Hyatt Regency host hotel, plus much much more. Over the next 2-3 weeks we will be adding the link to the on-line registration form and another one to the a downloadable conference registration form (for those of you who prefer to fill out a form rather than registering on-line) plus a downloadable copy of the print program. We hope to have all of this in place before the Christmas break. In the meantime if you have any questions or comments please feel free to contact us anytime.
The Western Conference on Safety is the largest Occupational Health & Safety Conference in Western Canada. Now in its 24th 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 2018 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!

The 2018 Western Conference on Safety is now over. While we are still compiling the results from the delegate evaluations the buzz was extremely positive. While the conference has now sold out for 6 of the last 7 years, the regular and group registration categories sold out over 3 weeks before the conference itself and that’s a new record. Over 1200 people participated in the conference over the 4 days of conference sessions, safety tradeshow and post conference courses. Thank you to all the speakers, exhibitors, volunteers, staff and all our wonderful attendees. The 2019 conference runs Monday April 8 and Tuesday April 9, 2019 at the Hyatt Regency Vancouver. Registrations for the conference will open November 1, 2018 with tradeshow sales opening in early September (date to be announced).
