Sellery Health & Safety

3:30 - 5:00 PM
Location: Metro Hall, 55 John Street, Toronto
Arts organizations face unique health and safety challenges. On any given day, your clients could be flying performers, building scenery or hanging artwork, using hazardous chemicals or working with dangerous equipment – sometimes all at once!
Like other sectors, the arts need health and safety procedures as a core element in risk management; but where to begin? It’s not like you can copy a health and safety program developed for a factory, a hospital, an office building? Your needs are truly one-of-a-kind. And the benefits are real:
- Compliance with the legislative requirements, such as Occupational Health & Safety Act and the Workplace Safety and Insurance Act
- Reduced costs associated with worker’s comp and disability claims
- Improved productivity, well being and morale
Join ACCA member Janet Sellery, recognized as one of Canada's leading experts in health and safety in the arts.
