Health and Safety Law & Risk Management Course:

Health & Safety on the trade show floor has become a paramount issue for the exposition industry. It goes far beyond the realm of accident prevention and responsible management. The new reality is that there are major liability implications in terms of fines and penalties as well as delays that can actually impede on your event schedules and business survival. It is not a matter to be taken lightly. There are more Health & Safety inspectors than ever before and it is the event manager’s responsibility to be informed about current safety laws and practices. To this end, CAEM has developed a new special course to provide your organization with the practical knowledge you need to avoid legal pitfalls and safeguard your business.

This new one-day course, Health and Safety Law & Risk Management for the Exposition Industry in Canada, will guide you through everything you need to know to stay clear of any potential liability issues. It’s concise, condensed, authoritative and customized for the exposition industry. Under the law, you need to exercise due diligence and it’s mandatory that you know the regulations; this course fulfills that requirement. It’s practical training rather than just theory. By the end of the course participants will be well prepared to address Health & Safety issues starting with the planning process right through from move-in to move-out.

“CAEM is offering you an opportunity to learn about the law in a way that’s customized to the specific issues faced by our industry. It’s a huge advantage. You’re not going to get that anywhere else. It applies to every single person on the show floor.” Lisa McDonald, Chief Operating Officer, Prospectors Developers Association of Canada.
