“What makes Conference Board of Canada’s Health and Safety Leadership Centre powerful is that it connects industry leaders, law makers, and educators from various sectors. Sharing of information and lessons learned is fundamental towards achieving event-free workplace. Bruce Power is a strong believer in achieving excellence in safety through situational awareness and hazard recognition. Through Health and Safety Leadership Centre, we as industry leaders have the opportunity to share the positive stories of what has worked for us. As we learn from one another about what did or could happen, we become better at building safer and healthier workplaces”
