On Friday June 22nd BC Charter Signatories from the Okanagan met to discuss their top of mind safety concerns, and quickly identified that young and new workers training needs to be addressed. Another topic that was explored was “focus and concentration with people doing repetitive tasks”.
Attendees spoke about their experiences over the past year, including attending other Charter events like the Round Table and breakfast forums. Sandra Oldfield, recent recipient of the Ben Hume Award, spoke to the importance of good succession planning. Chris Inkster talked about accountability and that a safety journeys are constantly evolving. Derek Sienko shared his thoughts on the benefits of attending the Round Table, bringing other members up to speed at a high level on the event, including the Return to Work presentation by BC Transit, the Cannabis panel, and some of the networking and ideas sharing that took place.
Congratulations to Lesli Bradley, who renewed Sun-Rype’s commitment to safety by signing the Charter in front of her Okanagan peers.
Many thanks to local sponsors Diversified Rehabilitation and Freeport Industries for providing the venue and lunch.
SAVE THE DATE! The next BC Safety Charter Round Table is April 25th 2019
