CSAM: The Safety Conference - February 5 & 6, 2013



CSAM ConferenceCSAM hosted another successful safety conference this year, it was a sell-out with 2175 participants. Over 100 tradeshow booths, over 20 courses, Big Daddy Tazz and great food and facilities from the Winnipeg Convention Centre all made for a very exciting couple of days. It was a great chance for us to learn new things, source new products, network and experience the thriving safety culture in Manitoba.

We took a course on "Understanding Workplace Safety & Health Enforcement" to gain more knowledge of the Manitoba system in order to better help our CSAM Bookletclients work through their improvement orders. It was a very educational course which touched on why SHO come to visit, the types of reports they can issue, how to properly respond and react, and a list of some inspection items that they generally look for during a visit.  It was interesting to note that the first item they mentioned was Safe Work Procedures. While administrative controls are lower on the hierarchy of controls, they are a crucial complement to your safeguarding plan and we always encourage our clients to ensure they have detailed and current procedures posted at their machines. A few other items on their list were documented inspections, housekeeping, your safety and health committee, PPE, fall protection, confined space, machine safeguarding, cranes & hoists, air quality and noise levels.

Thank you to Jennifer and Scott from Workplace Safety & Health for a very informative lecture.
