To celebrate the Nova Scotia Trucking Safety Association’s (NSTSA) 20th anniversary, a gala evening has been planned for Nov. 2 at The Westin Hotel in Halifax. The theme is Camo and Chrome, something that is sure to appeal to those who work in the trucking industry, Linda Corkum, Executive Director, NSTSA says.
Among the evening’s events, are NSTSA’s annual safety awards given out to those individuals and organizations whose efforts support workplace safety while maintaining their safety accreditation. The Safety Excellence Awards are presented every year to industry safety champions. Corkum says, “there will be individuals in attendance who have participated in our programs since the association’s beginnings in 1999. It will truly be an evening of celebration”.
Some of the categories include Professional Safe Driver of the Year Award, OHS Safety Representative of the Year, Community Spirit and Safety Champion of the Year.
Our guest speaker for this event is professional driver, David Henry. David will take us through the twists and turns of his life. He has survived multiple life changing experiences. This is a compelling story of a man who has battled back from head injuries and mental health issues who celebrates life every day, Corkum says. David’s story, we expect, will help others in the industry to speak up and share their story. Also, the proceeds from the auction held after the dinner will go towards assisting the people in the trucking industry who are members of our safety association with access to mental health resources. This will be the official launch.
