Three-Day Community Safety Seminar Gets Under Way Today

Saskatoon, SK - The Community Safety Seminar gathers together presenters, thought leaders, businesses, organizations, and like-minded individuals to learn about, discuss, and strategize ways in which participants can Work Together to Achieve a Safe Saskatchewan

“The successful reduction of injuries in the workplace has come through investments made in education, engineering, and policy changes. These efforts however, do not always carry forward to how employees act away from their place of work. We’ve done a good job with the workforce, that culture needs to go home” says Robert Weitzel, Director of Business Development with the Council.

Community Relations Coordinator with the Council, Merissa Scarlett, says “our goal is to bring together all those people currently working on making the community safer for seniors and youth, provide them with some information, get them talking and sharing best practices… working together is the key."
