Chair's Message December 2019

I can’t believe it is December and we are fully into the Holiday Season and the end of a decade is upon us.  I wanted to keep things light for this end of year message.  I know you are probably all busy wrapping up year end, planning travel or just looking forward to a little break. 

The Governing Board has been busy with many activities and outreach to continue to build relationships.  We signed an agreement with the Women in Occupational Health & Safety Society (WOHSS), attended events hosted by the Ontario Chamber of Commerce, the Conference Board of Canada, and I attended the Canada’s Safest Employers Awards dinner.  In November I also had the opportunity to present on the BCRSP certifications to the Canadian Society of Safety Engineering South Saskatchewan Chapter in Regina, SK.

The BCRSP Governing Board held a strategy review meeting at the beginning of December. At this meeting the Governing Board reviewed the BCRSP’s strategic plan and discussed changes to the OHS environment with an aim to ensure we are still on track and haven’t overlooked anything. We also took some time to review the expectations of individual governors and the Board as a whole.  The Board believes we are on the right track with our focus, direction and actions needed to reach intended results.

I want to wish you all a festive holiday season. Please continue to reach out with any questions or feedback that you may have.  Wishing you all a prosperous, happy and healthy 2020!
