Important Update: Workplace Safety North Event Cancellations

Thursday, March 12, 2020

Public events will not be held during pandemic

This year’s Mining Health and Safety Conference, Thunder Bay Health and Safety Conference and Timmins Health and Safety Conference are cancelled due to concerns over the spread of Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).  

The health and safety of staff and attendees always comes first. Health and safety is at the heart of who we are and what we do, so WSN will not be hosting public events during the pandemic. 

WSN is exploring options to provide a virtual online experience as soon as we are able to work through the ramifications of this unprecedented situation.

In the meantime, paid delegates, exhibitors and sponsors can expect to receive an email within the next two weeks to initiate refunds. 
Thank you for your support and understanding. WSN urges everyone to follow the guidelines and protocols put forth by public health officials to keep our workplaces and communities safe and healthy.
