What will the post-pandemic workplace look like?

Workplace Safety & Prevention Services stages virtual health and safety conference

Businesses seeking resources and support to benefit the health and wellbeing of their employees can still register for the Partners in Prevention Fall Virtual Conference on Oct. 21.

The virtual event is hosted by Workplace Safety & Prevention Services (WSPS). Entrants can register up to 8 a.m. on the day of the conference.

The agenda for this one-day event addresses the current and potential impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, and provides tools to help businesses move into the post-pandemic space.

“Since the pandemic hit, we’ve all been in this together – we’ve had to adjust to isolation, quarantine and so many challenges in our personal and professional lives. Now, with a second wave, we’re having to really hunker down again,” said WSPS president-CEO Lynn Brownell.

“Looking forward is critical to how we make it through. Sharing information and best practices and helping each other is in everyone’s best interest and this is a critical time for it.”

Presented in a virtual format, the conference theme, “Moving Forward,” will put industry leaders and top experts within reach of business owners and health and safety professionals who can remotely gain access to:

  • the insights and expertise of 21 exhibitors representing various industries;
  • three keynote speakers who will inspire and motivate with compelling stories; and
  • 10 breakout sessions with a pandemic focus.

“Future-focused sessions include our keynote on relearning what ‘normal’ is and how we’ll probably never go back to what we used to think was ‘normal.’ Former CFL linebacker Orlando Bowen will share his inspiring story of resilience in his “New Beginnings” keynote,” Brownell added.

“This pandemic has taught us to pause and rethink our priorities. Through examples of compassion, understanding, innovation and risk-taking, we can seek out opportunities for improvement – improving our work, our communities, and ourselves.”
