Mining Health and Safety Conference

Speaker presenting at the annual Workplace Safety North mining health and safety conference

IMPORTANT UPDATE: Event cancelled due to concerns over spread of novel coronavirus (COVID-19)

This year’s Mining Health and Safety Conference is 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. Registered delegates will be fully reimbursed.
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.
