Doug Gaetz

The Committee had a 3 hour conference call on July 5, to continue preparations for the upcoming National H&S Conference to be held October 18 to 21, 2012 in Ottawa.

The Committee also met August 13 to 15, 2012 in Ottawa to finalize agenda and the call out letter went to the locals on August 17th with deadline to register of September 10, 2010.

The theme of the conference will be “Health and Safety, How effective are we.”

The next National H&S Policy Committee meeting will be held on September 13, 2012.

Recommendation #1

Whereas the 2010 National Health & Safety Conference cost $424,000.000 and only $350,000.00 was budget for current national conference; and
 
Whereas this shows that the Health & Safety Conference was under estimated; and
 
Whereas there are also an increase in the number of delegates from 105 to 116, which automatically caused an increased of $43,000.00.

Be it resolved that the National Health & Safety Committee overspread line item by total of 96,000.00.
