Occupational Health & Safety Conference

The UNE Occupational Health and Safety Conference was held on October 1-4, 2015 at the Hilton Lac-Leamy in Gatineau QC. More than 120 UNE members took in expert presentations and participated in workshops that helped them gain a better understanding of the issues we face in our workplaces across the country. We would like to thank all those who participated - you helped make our conference a great success. The next Health and Safety Conference will be held in 2018.
