Preventing Catastrophes in Confined Spaces
May 3 & 4, 2010
Vancouver Marriott Pinnacle Downtown Hotel
1128 West Hastings, Vancouver, BC
Presented by The University of British Columbia School of Environmental Health
Co-sponsored by WorkSafeBC
Join us in Vancouver BC for an advanced-level seminar led by a panel of subject matter experts who will guide thought-provoking and stimulating discussion of ideas and best practices on preventing catastrophes in confined spaces and in dealing with challenges associated with risks of confined space work.
The two-day program includes breakout sessions to allow participants to examine applications in two industrial settings and to further explore, interact and solve issues pertaining to atmospheric monitoring and the use of engineering controls to eliminate and/or reduce risks associated with confined space work. The seminar also features an introduction to the new CSA Standard Z1006, Management of Work in Confined Spaces. A CSA committee member will explain how this standard overlays BC regulation, including a discussion of implementing the standard to ensure compliance with regulatory requirements. Recent multiple fatalities in confined spaces in British Columbia will be discussed, as will rescue and its proper assessment and preparation to ensure the health and safety of all involved.
Who should attend: This course is aimed at industrial hygienists, environmental and occupational health and safety professionals, managers, supervisors, engineers, and others with responsibility for carrying out risk assessments prior to permitting entry into confined spaces.
There will be exhibits of instrumentation and equipment vendors who will show their latest innovations, products and services. Exhibitor listing is shown in the course website

Reason: updated brochure with new certification maintenance info and new exhibitors
That looks very interesting even though it will have the provincial spin on it. I am away at other meetings during that time, wonder if there will be a summary or other information available after the seminar? I have a large interest as I manage training and confined space programs at my Agency.
