Close to 150 safety leaders, including many CEOs, met in Halifax to strengthen their commitment to workplace safety. The focus of the conference was Mental Health in the Workplace with Louise Bradley, President and CEO of the Mental Health Commission of Canada, delivering the keynote presentation on employee mental health. The conference also featured two breakout sessions on the leadership required for mental health in the workplace, and on best practices to support health and safety mentors. The Nova Scotia Health and Safety Leadership Charter was signed last October by the CEOs of 30 companies, including the WCB. By September 2016, the charter had more than 60 signatories. A key part of this commitment is that the signatories meet once a year.
