It’s been 25 years since the first shipment of wood pellets left Canada. Today the sector is a global powerhouse when it comes to clean, responsible and renewable energy and a critical solution in the fight against climate change. With global demand comes increased production and renewed focus on the safety of workers.

Join the Wood Pellet Association of Canada at a full-day pre-conference safety workshop on Sept. 18 at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa as they discuss and explore ways to ensure that safety is keeping up with the pace of industry. One such way is the enhanced adoption of process safety management, with a focus on two critical drivers: inherently safer design and safety culture. Participants will identify key issues, trends and opportunities to strengthen safety across the pellet sector.  Your insight will provide an important foundation for the sector’s safety initiatives both short-term and for years to come.

The session will be facilitated by Paul Amyotte, P.Eng., distinguished research professor and professor of chemical engineering at Dalhousie University and supported by safety experts and leaders across the Canadian pellet sector. Participants will receive a certificate of completion for continuing education.
