Workers Compensation Board of Prince Edward Island

Register now for the WCB Workplace Health & Safety Conference

February 24, 2015

The Workers Compensation Board (WCB) encourages those with an interest in creating a culture of workplace safety on Prince Edward Island to register for its annual safety conference.  


The 2015 Workplace Health & Safety Conference is being held in Charlottetown on May 8th as part of North American Occupational Safety and Health (NAOSH) Week.  Delegates will be able to customize their learning experience by selecting from a wide variety of workshops relevant to today’s employers, managers, supervisors and workers.  Topics include building collaborative workplaces, dealing with substance abuse in the workplace and ways to transform safety training into safe work practices.  The conference also features a trade show of products and services from Canada’s health and safety community.


The key note speaker is Jacques Demers. Throughout his storied career, Jacques Demers built a name as one of the most successful coaches in the National Hockey League. After hundreds of on-ice victories across Canada and the United States, Demers went on to a thriving career as a television sports commentator. Yet during all those years behind the bench and in front of the camera, he managed to hide a remarkable fact - he could neither read nor write. Sharing his incredible story, Demers inspires others to have the courage to confront, and conquer, their greatest fears and sheds light on the thousands of people who, like him, unjustly suffer through illiteracy.


With a registration fee of only $125 per person, spaces are limited.  To register, visit the Safety Conference section at to register or contact Wilma Lewis at,  902-368-5697 or 1-800-237-5049 (toll free in Atlantic Canada).
