Energy and Resilience in Crazy Times

Looking for an energy boost? You’ve just found it! Join Linda for a hands-on, highly humorous ride that will re-focus, re-energize and re-invent how you see your life and your work in the transportation world. Her straight-shooting approach is packed with relevant, easy solutions that will enable you to take back your work day and personal life.


Mental Health in Transportation:
What You Need To Know

Cathy Cook
Safe Harbour Consulting

We all have mental health the same as we have physical health. Just as we are concerned about the physical health of ourselves and the people we work with, we need to be concerned about everyone’s mental health and well-being.

With all the issues constantly bombarding us - from work, from home, from coworkers, from family members - it's no surprise that one in five of us are living with a mental health challenge in any given year.

This session will bring to light how we view mental health in the workplace, and help employers and workers begin to break down the stigma surrounding mental health to lead to a safer, healthier workplace.

Modernizing Your HR Approach

Angela Splinter
Trucking HR Canada

In today’s tight labour market, successful truck fleets and logistics companies know that staying abreast of the top HR issues will help them stay ahead of the competition. Hear from Angela Splinter, CEO, Trucking HR Canada, on the top HR trends shaping the industry and the tools and resources you need to attract, recruit and retain workers, now and in the future.

Diversity in Transportation:
Bullying, Harassment, and the Acceptance of Others

Dave Earle
President & CEO
BC Trucking Association

Personal conduct in the workplace has never been more important to your company’s success than it is today. With the increased focus on psychological injury and mental health in the workplace, companies must ensure that employees clearly understand and demonstrate acceptable behaviors.
BC has required provincially regulated employers to address bullying and harassment in the workplace for many years and this fall, the federal government will require all federally regulated employers to develop similar practices. Dave will review provincial and federal standards, discuss real-world examples and case law, and will provide tools and templates that employers can apply in their workplaces.

Industry Driven New Safety Resources

Jacqueline Morrison
Industry Specialist
Transportation & Occupational Road Safety

Truck drivers face hazards on the job every day, hazards that don’t even involve driving. WorkSafeBC will be discussing the collaborative process followed in the development of WorkSafeBC’s three new commercial trucking videos. These videos were made in partnership with SafetyDriven and supported by the industry through the BCTA and private employers. Learn how these videos give a voice to real professional drivers and their safety experiences.
