Health and Safety Committee

The workplace is too often dangerous to our health. Every year, deaths, injuries and chronic diseases take their toll. The Health and Safety Committee is focused on prevention and on maintaining the highest degree of physical and mental health.

Our conference call meetings can easily accommodate you – no matter where you live. Add your voice to the events and initiatives that we organize and develop expertise in Health and Safety.
