“Great course, offered up some fantastic ideas to manage risk. Had a variety of H&S professionals from all over Canada and it was nice to have feedback from many of them along the way. I am loving these virtual courses and am very pleased to be able to participate in them. Having the courses offered this way has allowed me to take more than I could usually get to when held in class.”
