Getting Employer Support for PDC

Unless you work in the OHS field or are a member of the JOHSC, not everyone knows what it takes to stay current as an OHS practitioner.  Only we know how important networking with colleagues is to gain best practice information and that attending training sessions with reputable facilitators is crucial to update knowledge and to keep in line with ever changing regulations.  How do you gain your employers support to attend the CSSE national PDC?

With close to 5,000 members nationwide and 36 established local chapters, the Canadian Society of Safety Engineering (CSSE) is the leading health, safety and environmental organization for professionals in Canada. CSSE is holding their annual professional development conference in Vancouver this year and you don’t want to miss it!

  • This conference is the largest for occupational health, safety, and environmental practitioners in the country.
