On April 8, 2015, the Radiation Safety Institute of Canada will host its 2nd Annual Breakfast Meeting with its Health and Safety Partners.

The meeting is organized to bring together national and provincial Health and Safety organizations: the Ontario Ministry of Labour, Workplace Safety & Prevention Services (WSPS), Infrastructure Health and Safety Association (IHSA), Workplace Safety North (WSN), Public Services Health and Safety Association (PSHSA), Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS), Occupational Health Clinics for Ontario Workers (OHCOW), Workers Health & Safety Centre (WHSC) and others.

Our guest of honour is Mr. George Gritziotis, Chief Prevention Officer, Ontario Ministry of Labour.

This breakfast event is our way of thanking all our partners for their support of the Institute’s radiation safety mandate and its prevention agenda. During the meeting we will give a short briefing on the Institute’s ongoing projects and our new initiatives. At the end of the event we will invite the leaders of our partner organizations to sign the Memorandums of Understanding with the Institute for the year 2015 and to discuss ways we can work together to further the ultimate goal of PREVENTION in the province.
