  • Cannabis and the Workplace

  • Mental Health
  • Safety Systems
  • Technical Report Writing
  • Effective Communication

Proposals should include relevancy of the topic; a clear outline of design and intended results; details about cutting-edge ideas, experience and learning; and the extent to which the session will address audience needs. Special requirements such as handouts and other resources, polls to be set-up in advance, and discussion elements should be highlighted in the proposal.


Members of CSSE include occupational health and safety professionals with a range of experience, working in a variety of industries. Senior-level viewpoints are particularly encouraged as well as "how to" approaches or case studies. Plan your presentation with the following points in mind:

  1. Use concrete examples;
  2. Include take-aways use immediately;
  3. Use true stories or case studies (don’t be theoretical);
  4. Use best practices, including a variety of opinions.


Webinars are broadly categorized as "all audiences", "intermediate" or "senior" and all should exceed the participants' expectations by enabling them to easily put their new knowledge into practice. Please note that the classifications are based on the H&S role of audience members, and not based on seniority or the number of years one has served in their career. CSSE reserves the right to reclassify a webinar if it is determined by the CMD Subcommittee that the content does not match the submitted classification.
