WCB Workplace Health & Safety Conference
It Takes a Team

The WCB was pleased to host another sold-out Workplace Health and Safety Conference on May 4, 2017 in Charlottetown, just before the start of North American Occupational Safety and Health (NAOSH) Week.

The event featured workshops to promote workplace safety and injury prevention. Workshop topics included:
  • Medical Marijuana in the Workplace
  • Staying Positive through Rehabilitation
  • Steps to Safety
  • The Three Secrets to Your Workplace Health and Safety and Me
  • Barriers to Return to Work for Workers with Chronic Pain
  • Workplace Inspections
  • Air Quality in the Workplace
  • Compassion Fatigue…Symptoms and Prevention
This year’s key note speaker was Candace Carnahan, who shared her personal story of a devastating workplace incident where she lost her lower left leg at the vulnerable age of 21. Candace shares her personal story of triumph-over-tragedy, in an effort to eliminate preventable workplace injuries.

The WCB thanks everyone who worked to make this year's conference a success. Check back here in January 2018 for information on next year's conference. If you are interested in presenting or participating in the trade show for the 2018 conference, please contact us at
