    “I have always asked myself, ‘why do I attend these conferences?’ This year, the addition of the AMSP brought this home even more. After the second day of the conference on my 1-hour drive home I realized why. I come to be inspired, so I can be inspirational at work. Many safety people see things that move us from center of why we do what we do, and the inspiration of these workshops and keynote speakers help us get back to centre and remember why we started our journeys as safety professionals.”

    – Gary L’Heureux, CRSP; Health & Safety Officer Western Canada; The Day & Ross Transportation Group
