2018 ACSA Conference

2018 ACSA Conference Program
The Conference – March 8 & 9, 2018
The ACSA’s annual conference is the premier annual event for all safety leaders in Alberta. It provides a unique networking opportunity for approximately 400 delegates across two big days and we are proud that it remains the best value safety conference in the province. It also provides a valuable chance for safety leaders to learn how to build on their important role of upholding the culture and practices of health and safety in the construction industry.

In 2017, we sold out weeks before the conference starting date. Don’t miss out in 2018!

The Theme 

The theme for the ACSA’s 2018 conference is Safety Without Borders. Safety is crossing provincial and international borders. Alberta has changed its safety legislation to align with other provinces. Canada is attempting to improve working conditions in North America through its NAFTA negotiations. Consumers now consider labour conditions when buying foreign-made clothes. And international standards are becoming more prevalent.

But safety crosses other borders, too. It crosses cultural borders. The blurring lines between industry sectors are making safety systems more crucial. From the workplace into home life, and on hockey rinks and football fields, safety awareness is greater than at any time before.

As safety continues to transcend borders, what does is mean for you as a safety leader? What does it mean for senior managers and company owners?

Special Announcements

In this, the ACSA’s 30th anniversary year, we will be announcing some exciting developments for our annual conference.

  • We have renamed the NCSO Professional Development Conference to the much easier and more inclusive ACSA Conference.
  • We are also excited to announce that the conference has grown over the last couple of years. In fact, it has grown so much that we are unable to comfortably accommodate the event in the hotels we have traditionally used. For the first time, we are using the Calgary Telus Convention Centre in 2018.
